Allegheny Greens Organize for Pittsburgh Protest
July 28th, 2009
The Green Party of Allegheny County in Pennsylvania has announced that it is working with other progressive organizations to organize a demonstration and other activities in response to a meeting of the G-20 that will take place in Pittsburgh on September 24th and 25th this year. The Allegheny Greens write,
“The Group of Twenty (G-20) Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors represents the world’s economic leaders, intimately connected to the most powerful multi-national corporations that dominate the global economy. Their neo-liberal policies have squandered billions on war, plunged economies into deep recessions, worsened social, economic and political inequality, and polluted the earth. We believe a better world is possible.”
The Allegheny Greens will take part in a People’s Summit being planned for September 19th, 20th and 21st. On September 25th, the Greens will join others in a march of protest against the activities of the G-20.
