At least 35,000 people marched through London yesterday to protest against the global economic crisis, climate change, and world poverty
At the start of a week that could determine the economic fate of the planet, as well as his own future, Gordon Brown last night took the gamble of raising expectations for the G20 Summit by pledging it would meet the concerns of protesters demanding fundamental change to haul the world out of recession.
The Prime Minister insisted the landmark gathering in London would respond to unprecedented global demands for action, with measures to "create jobs, stimulate business and get the economy moving".
His pledge came as a broad alliance of activists demonstrated in European capitals including London, where at least 35,000 people took to the streets in a march for "jobs, justice and climate". http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brown-tells-demonstrators-i-will-meet-all-your-concerns-1656620.html
