FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ST ANDREWS: ‘NAE TAE G20’

7/11/9: Hundreds of people will assemble in Market Street, St Andrews, at 1:30pm Saturday 7th, to say ‘nae’ to the G20.

The demonstration, which has been supported by Stop the War, the SSP, a growing number of unions, and numerous St Andrews student societies, has been called in order to demonstrate opposition to the policies of the G20 finance ministers who are meeting in St Andrews for a summit on the economic recovery.

“We are opposing the G20 because they are an unrepresentative, undemocratic organization that serves the few at the expense of the many.  The G20 may have come to a quiet corner of Fife, but that does not mean they will escape public opposition,” said Katherine Kemp, a fourth year international relations student at St. Andrews.

“The G20 are continuing to prioritize unsustainable economic growth which is causing catastrophic environmental degradation.  Whilst they enjoy their luxuries at the Fairmont hotel, we will be there as the voice of the voiceless,” said Amir Gholami, a third year philosophy student also at St. Andrews.

The G20 has helmed one of the largest economic recessions in history and has been responsible for the growing gap between the rich and the poor.  Organisers have stated they do not want the G20 in their town, or anywhere.
