G20: put people first!

Hi y'all, it's been a while.

Anyway, we were yesterday raising our voices to tell all sorts of things to the G20 heroes: climate change, financial crisis, job losses... the list was quite long actually. The point was to try to show the discontent over the whole world-wide situation. As for me, I finally found the banner that said exactly what I wanted to say:

Capitalism isn't working

If you still do not believe this, have another look. Resources are limited, put it in your head. Aiming at a 6% yearly growth is a death sentence for the planet and us eventually. Let's take it easy shall we? Start all over, and just LIVE. We are not saying that it is easy to find a better economic system, but at least there are some proposals out there already worth having a look. A good summary of the economic systems can be found here. The most innovative (and never tried!) systems include Participatory economics and or Economic democracy.

So much to say for a cloudy Saturday morning. But it's the echo that counts, let's make it resonate.
