With NATO/G8 in Chicago to design their program of war and austerity, you can help send an entirely different message of peace, social justice, and equality by getting involved in the People’s Summit to be held in the run-up to their meeting.

The People’s Summit will convene on May 12-13 at Occupy Chicago Headquarters, 500 W. Cermak in Chicago.

The goal of the People’s Summit is to unite the broadest and most diverse possible array of organizations and individuals who dissent from the global vision of NATO/G8. We will be seeking proposals for workshops shortly!

The People’s Summit will help educate a new generation about the issues that we all confront as well as mobilize people to the mass march and rally on May 19 being organized by the Coalition Against NATO/G8 (CANG8).

The vision is to have an open, democratic and inclusive conference, which will include both large panels and self-organized workshops.

The speakers list is still being formed, but we are honored to have Malalai Joya (women’s rights activist, writer, and former MP in Afghanistan) and Reiner Braun (No-To-NATO ICC) as speakers.

If you are interested in being a part of the People’s Summit working group, or have any questions, please contact CANGATE2012@gmail.com.
