This people’s version of the summit is June 18-20th, one week before the G20 gets behind the fence and does theirs.

From the website: The 2010 People’s Summit is civil society’s alternative “counter Summit” happening the week before the G8 and G20 Summits in Huntsville and Toronto this June 25th – 27th. Together we will create a space where diverse local and international movements can democratically organize to advocate and educate for global justice.
