j18 - ask the big questions

On June 18 ... Ask the Big Questions

Should the future of the planet be left in the hands of corporations?
Is economic "progress" killing the planet?
Why do so few have so much while so many have nothing at all?

Why aren't these and other questions on the agenda of the G-8 meeting in
Koln, Germany which Canada will be attending?

Join people around the world in a carnival of non-violent action against
corporate greed.
