Polaris Institute Director Tony Clarke in Seoul for G20 Summit
November 9, 2010 – This week, Polaris Institute Director Tony Clarke will be in South Korea as part of the global resistance to the latest G20 summit in Seoul. Clarke will be in South Korea to participate in alternative actions to the G20 along with a growing network of organizations, activists and social movements who are organizing to confront the illegitimate and undemocratic summit process.
While the G20 meetings do not begin until November 11th, The Peoples’ Week of Action in Seoul is bringing together people to discuss another way for the world to move forward that is apart from the dominant neoliberal model that has caused so much inequality and injustice. This alternative forum will be hosting workshops and roundtables on subjects dealing with alternatives to the global economy, agriculture and trade, gender justice and the climate crisis.
This week, The Polaris Institute will be participating in the People's Week of Collective Actions to confront the G20 Summit in Seoul.
This call to action is from the the 'Our World is Not for Sale' (OWINFS) network. The Polaris Institute is an active participant in this worldwide grouping of organizations, activists and social movements fighting the current model of corporate globalization embodied in global trading system.
