The World People’s Summit

Each year before the ‘official’ COP meeting of world leaders an alternative gathering of less powerful social activists from around the world gathers at the World People’s Summit. Ban Ki Moon attended last week’s event in Bolivia and this is the first report that I have seen about it’s radical demands. Common Dreams is a progressive self-funding source of journalism not beholden to advertisers or the corporate world. I doubt that the People’s Summit that targets capitalism as a root cause of global crises (not only climate change) will get much coverage in the mainstream press.
