An umbrella group of social activists has said it plans to protest next month’s G20 summit because the leaders don’t represent the interests of ordinary people.

John Clark with the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty said demonstrators won’t be muzzled.

“If you are going to impose this poverty and misery on people throughout this planet, don’t think that you’re going to be able to ask them to confine themselves to sedate, nice polite methods of struggle,” Clark said. “People, by God, are going to resist and they have a a damn right to.”

Demonstrators said they will be protesting for self-determination for indigenous people, climate justice, income equity, community control over resources and migrant justice.
