Counter Summit: Peoples Social Forum
July 10-11@ Toronto
wheelchair accessible • childcare provided
Social Forum in Toronto to counter the Pan American Economic Summit that will bring the heads of Shell, Rockefeller Foundation, US, Canadian and European Chambers of Commerce, as well as Canada's Finance Minister, ex-Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres and John Negroponte to Toronto from July 8 to the 10th, 2015.
Starting July 10, the Peoples' Social Forum will be hosting a counter summit in Toronto, bringing together activists, students, unions, Indigenous peoples, youth, environmentalists, and hundreds of ordinary individuals to oppose the current political and economic direction of thiscountry, and propose a plurality of alternative paths towards a better world.
This gathering will take place on Missassauga Anishinaabe territory. It has been a home and hunting grounds to many peoples, including the Haudenosaunee, Wendat, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit. It is the territory of the One Dish One Spoon treaty, which was made between the Anishinaabe and Haudenausonee in order to share hunting and fishing territories. What belongs to one belongs to all. In this spirit, we will come together to find ways to work together towards a more just and joyful world.
