G20 MOBILISATION - Rally 28th March 2009 in London

31 Mar 2009

Even before the banking collapse caused recession, the world suffered vast poverty and inequality and faced the looming threat of climate chaos. Governments, business and international institutions have followed a model of financial deregulation that has encouraged short-term profits, instability and an economy fuelled by ever-increasing debt, both financial and environmental.

There can be no going back to business as usual. The only sustainable way to rebuild the global economy is to create a fair distribution of wealth that provides decent jobs and public services for all, ends global inequality and builds a low carbon future.

Recession must not be an excuse for putting off action for global justice or to stop climate chaos. Creating a just, fair and sustainable world is the only lasting way out of recession.

On 28th March thousands of people marched through London as part of a global campaign to challenge the G20 leaders.

Our message is clear. We must put people first.

• Put People First: Decent jobs and public services for all
• Put People First: End global poverty and inequality
• Put People First: Build a green economy
