President Obama and his British counterpart Prime Minister David Cameron toast the rich at G20
The G20 (Group of Twenty) or as I refer to it Gang of Twenty, summit going on in Toronto is basically a meeting where nations and huge financial institutions get together and try to figure how to make the rich richer and the poor poorer. Okay, that's not the official agenda but that's what really goes on.
Anyway, it seems to me that maybe the poor and working class people of the world need to organize a summit to counteract the G20 summit. Poor and working class people need to band together and form strategies to fend off the constant barrage of attacks from governments and private financial institutions.
Maybe if the poor and working class had such strategies we wouldn't have gotten caught up in the derivative/ mortgage crisis that sunk millions of poor and working class people around the world. We, the average people, can no longer afford to sit around naïvely thinking that our governments are actually going to look out for us. That fantasy ought to have been crushed when governments around the world bailed out bank after bank and yet sat and watched as average folk struggled and drowned in the economic whirlpool that was born on the Wall Streets of the world.
Hopefully by the next G20 summit working people will understand that rather than watching worthless anarchist protests at these summits that we need to band together and have our own summit.
