21 May 2010

Photostream from the Linking Alternatives-Enlazando Alternativas Peoples' Summit that took place in Madrid (Spain) from 14 to 18 May 2010.

The Peoples Summit 'Linking Alternatives 4' is an alternative meeting to the Summit of Heads of State and Government of the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean taking place in Madrid from 14 to 18 May 2010. The Biregional network Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, which organizes Linking Alternatives, comprises civil society representatives from those regions in a space for action and reflection that seeks to contribute to building 'another world'.

The agenda of Linking Alternatives 4 does not only cover trade issues, but it also includes a wide range of issues such as militarization, human rights, water, food sovereignty, migrations, climate change, etc. The Permanent Peoples' Tribunal, an opinion tribunal which aims to give visibility to social movements and citizens’ struggles against human rights violations, will focus on the complicity of the European Union (EU) with the abuses of transnational corporations (TNCs) and denounce the impunity of European TNCs and their impacts on peoples’ rights.
