France is the host country of the next G7 meeting to be held in Biarritz from 24 to 26 August 2019.
For decades, the G7 has played the role of an economic and financial directorate alongside the IMF, the WTO and the World Bank. Today, it is the space where seven of the world’s greatest economic powers and the European Commission come together to perpetuate a system that has led to the growth of inequalities and the destruction of our planet, while allowing the omnipotence and harmful influence of big corporations to continue. Thus, a large proportion of people are denied their rights and every day the promises of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are violated. The UN’s legitimacy is being questioned from all sides. There is oppression and violence in every corner of the world, while austerity policies lead to a decline in human rights.
