Protest the G20 Summit
in New York City!

Sept. 19 & 20

Another world is urgently necessary –

Bail Out People–Not Banks
Money for Social Needs–Not War & Greed
Jobs, Housing, Healthcare & Education are a Right
Organize-Mobilize-Resist-Unite-Fight Back!

The third G20 summit is going to be in NYC on or around September 20, 2009. The G20 summits are held in response to the greatest worldwide economic crisis since the 1930s. But these high-level meetings of governments and bankers are not held to rescue the people of the world from depression level unemployment, evictions, homelessness, poverty, social and economic inequality and war.

These summits are about fixing the economic and financial order that puts profits before people – and fixing that system by creating more poverty, misery and suffering.

The last G20 Summit held in London in early April was met with massive protests both in London and throughout Europe.
Now that the G20 is coming to the U.S., it is up to activists and organizations here to take up the challenge of uniting and working together to organize the biggest protests possible. BOPM urges activists and organizations to endorse the call for protest at the G20 Summit in the fall, and to begin organizing for it.

The potential for mass mobilization in September is truly infinite. So let’s begin the work required to realize that powerful potential.
