The People’s Summit, organized by social movements and grassroots organizations, will be held in parallel with the Summit of the Americas. This effort by grassroots organizations was born as a response to the historic role of the SOA in advocating for free trade, neoliberal policies and the so-called Washington Consensus.
During the event, representatives from Latin American labor unions, indigenous confederations and feminist groups, among other grassroots movements, will have an opportunity to articulate various issues affecting the region.
Workshops and presentations
The People’s Summit will host workshops and presentations on 15 different topics, ranging from the threat to peace in the region posed by the United States to the fight to end the economic blockade against Cuba.
