For A PRESS CONFERENCE/SPEAK OUT
To Assess th G192 U.N. Global Economic Crisis Meeting

Participants will include: Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark; a representative of Miquel Descoto, President of the U.N. General Assembly; Representatives of community and labor organizations, international alliances, civil society groups, and activists.
This U.N. conference is representing all U.N. members to confront the global economic disaster, not just the G8 or G20 governments who are primarily responsible for it. A G192 meeting was originally sabotaged by the G8. We ask you to be in solidarity with the masses of people at home and around the world who daily are sinking deeper into unemployment, poverty and starvation.
The G20 will be meeting in Pittsburgh, Pa. Sept. 24th and 25th. The press conference will be announcing plans for major demonstrations before and during the G20. Simultaneous demonstrations will take place around the world.
“Jobs for All the World’s Unemployed”, and “Solidarity, Not Competition” will be a major theme, as well as all the demand to provides funds for other social needs, not war. The I.L.O. counts global unemployment at 1.6 billion and in the U.S., 25 million are either unemployed or underemployed. Hundreds of unemployed workers at the Detroit People’s Summit have just vowed to make their demands known in Pittsburgh.
Please join us Friday to say all the world has a right to discuss the economic crisis and also has a right to jobs, housing, education, health care, equality and peace. We are asking for short written statements. Let us know if your union or organization would like to make a one minute statement.
Also endorse (http://www.bailoutpeople.org/septg20endorse.shtml) the Pittsburgh G20 mobilization and we hope you and/or your organization will be active leaders and participants in this effort.
