The G20 Alternative Summit was a popular assembly or teach-in in a densely populated, working class area of London. It is being hosted at the national level by Britains University and College Lecturers Union (UCU). In short, this was an event for everyone who thinks that the bankers and politicians in their pay have been making a mess of things and need to be sacked and replaced.
At the last minute UEL pulled their support of the event, which was supposed to be held accross 2 lecture halls, forcing the event to be staged outside. It's a sad day when our educational system, our Universities, pull away from opportunities to THINK and find solutions. Organiser and lecturer Chris Knight is currently suspended for comments made to the press in the run up to the G20 Meltdown... Serious Kudos to him for keeping on track and making sure this event happened!!!!
