People’s solutions are #BETTERTHANDAVOS
23-30 JANUARY 2021
This coming January, people on the frontlines of inequality will be mobilising around the world to ensure the ‘recovery’ from Covid-19 supercharges the fight against inequality.
From Nairobi to Manila, Cape Town to Guadalajara, and many other cities, people powered protests are demanding an end to the age of greed and putting forward their solutions for a more equal society.
This year the pandemic did not just lay bare, but supercharged the inequality virus that plagues our societies. We are organising to change a system that treats people not as humans who have the right to a life of dignity, but as disposable objects, and abuses the planet far beyond its capacity.
As we enter 2021, the annual face to face meeting of the 1% on the Swiss mountain resort in Davos is postponed and has moved online. Even the World Economic Forum is calling for “The Great Reset of Capitalism”. The 1% know that neoliberalism has failed people and the planet.
But people on the frontlines of inequality know better than to listen to billionaire solutions to a broken system. In January we will say that the people’s solutions - our solutions - are #BetterThanDavos.
As governments and international institutions debate what the economic ‘recovery’ looks like to the pandemic, we cannot continue the cruelty of the current system. A system where billionaire wealth continues to explode, whilst billions struggle to survive.
More than ever, people will come together in one massive movement during the Global Protest to Fight Inequality all across the world to move ahead with solutions that work for the 99%. We, people at the frontlines of inequality, are cancelling Davos.
This people-powered protest needs you to get involved.
