G20: Don’t worry!
The Group of Twenty (G20), composed of nineteen countries (including Canada) and the European Union, will meet in Buenos Aires (Argentina) November 30 - December 1.
Until then, newspapers and media analysts will most likely tell us again that they won’t all get along on some major issues during this summit.
Don’t worry! The “leaders” of these countries will all agree as thick as thieves, you can be sure in advance, on everything that really matters:
- leaving the destiny of our world in the hands of rich people, banks, and big corporations;
- despoiling poor countries with a sophisticated set of economic, political and military measures to subdue them, stop their march towards democracy and justice and reduce their populations to poverty and obedience;
- maintaining democracy in its embryonic state in rich countries and doing everything to stop it in the poorest countries, by private control of information and entertainment in the rich ones, and by force and intimidation in the poorest;
- and at any cost, preventing the sharing of powers that would lead to real participatory democracy, and thus to equality and justice.
I can already hear someone asking: “But what can we do?” Well, we can start at the beginning! We can start by talking with our friends and colleagues about things that matter: justice, fairness, environment, democracy and equality. Questioning our present world-order is certainly the first step and a huge step towards a better world.
