Sydney Peoples Alternative Rally and Festival Friday, September 7 in Hyde
Park North from 11am
Many thousands of people in Sydney do not welcome the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meeting in our city. Their alternative view will be expressed at a colourful festival to be held on Friday, September 7 in Hyde Park North from 11am to 2pm.
All People for Environment and Community, a wide coalition of community groups have come together to organise the Peoples’ Alternative Festival.
The Festival will promote the people’s alternative of fair trade, real action on global warming, genuine development to alleviate poverty, opposition to war, and respect for the labour rights and human rights of all the peoples of our vast Asia Pacific region.
Music, performance, speakers, information and food stalls will combine to offer an inclusive peaceful people’s vision for the future, in stark contrast to the secretive, big business agenda of the 21 APEC leaders behind their concrete barricades.
Bands include: Men from UNCLE; Ken Stewart (Urban Guerrillas); Bolivarian Band and Korean drummers.
