International people's solidarity days
THE GLOBAL CRISIS
Islands being submerged by rising sea levels, the collapse of financial systems, rising food prices – crisis is spreading across the world. The world is now feeling the consequences of neoliberal globalization and developing countries that were forced to deregulate and liberalize their economies are now at the mercy of this global crisis. The global food crisis is but the latest of the crises spawned by neoliberalism. These series of crises have brought to the forefront the flawed policies of corporate globalization, which has brought nothing but worsening poverty, increasing insecurity and deepening indebtedness. The policies of the G8 have also increased militarization and wars and now they are pushing for market-based solutions to climate change, which threaten to endanger the future of the planet.
We can no longer let this continue. The time is now for all of us around the world to come together and join forces to make our voices heard and stop the G8 from doing any further damage to the world.
