Put people first

On 28 March, thousands of people will take to the streets of London as part of a global campaign to challenge the G20 on the spiralling financial crisis. The G20 will be gathering on 2 April for a summit on the crisis.

Concern Worldwide will be there, and we’re now an official member of the “Put People First: Jobs, Justice, Climate” campaign. We’re not the only ones – there are over 70 organisations now taking part.

It is hoped that the march will put pressure on the G20 to create an economy based on fair distribution of wealth, decent jobs for all and a low carbon future. According to the Put People First site, “There can be no going back to business as usual.”

Do you live in the UK? Why not take part? Here is some information about transport to the march.

For up-to-the-minute information you can follow the campaign on Twitter. A Facebook group has been set up as well.
