G8 2013 – MARCH AND FESTIVAL FOR A FAIRER WORLD

MARCH & RALLY PLANNED FOR BELFAST ON SATURDAY 15th JUNE

ASSEMBLE CUSTOM HOUSE SQUARE 12noon RALLY AT BELFAST CITY HALL 1pm

Following the announcement of the siting of the G8 summit in Fermanagh, a range of civil society organisations formed a working committee designed to co-ordinate events offering an alternative and a challenge to the agenda at the G8. A statement of principle is below.

Details of the Fairer World Festival are available on http://www.fairerworldfestival.org/ and on http://www.ictuni.org

Events during the Fairer World Festival include debates, lectures, film screenings, comedy, music and dance, featuring Tariq Ali, George Galloway, Scott Capuro, and dozens of local and international artists, activists and thinkers.

Programmes and leaflets can be collected from the ICTU’s Belfast office, 4-6 Donegall Street Place Belfast.

The committee, hosted by the Northern Ireland Committee of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions, comprises trade unions, trades councils, and campaigning groups such as Amnesty International, Friends of the Earth, the IPSC and anti-fracking campaigners. The committee supports and works with the IF campaign.

G8 2013: time for a fairer world

Civil society organisations have come together to offer people an opportunity to challenge the policies and priorities of the G8 leaders who meet in Northern Ireland in June 2013.

Our organisations represent many different interests but we are united in a commitment to the creation of a world that is fair and just for all.

We believe that achieving social, economic and environmental justice must be central to political decision-making.

We will coordinate a festival of events to coincide with the G8 summit, including a major public demonstration in Belfast, calling for a fairer world.

There will be a major public march and rally held in Belfast on Saturday 15th June 2013. The event is being timed so that people can participate in the march and go onto other events being planned in Belfast on that day, such as the IF Campaign’s major event as well as other talks, debates, concerts, screenings and exhibitions – part of the Fairer World Festival.

“Amnesty International, Friends of the Earth, the IPSC and anti-fracking campaigners.”

The usual collection of pot-smoking anarchist losers,
in other words.
