Who will be there?
Those that protest for global justice and against poverty or those fighting for safe drinking water, decent jobs, and human rights – everyone trying to make a difference, be they from inside organizations, inside politics, inside or outside the system. We welcome activists from all walks of life: everyone from the First Nations, labour, the faith community, environmentalists, low income groups, equity seeking groups or youth.
If you self-identify as someone trying to make our world a better place, please join us.
