Since 2006, Breakdown Press, a Melbourne-based publishing company with a background in zines, street art, and activism, has been producing free multi-page broadsheets featuring political posters on a variety of peace and justice issues. This poster is from Series #2 and was published to coincide with the G20 Summit and the Carnival against Capitalism protests that took place in Melbourne in November 2006. The G-20 or Group of Twenty are finance ministers and central bank governors from 20 major economies: 19 countries plus the European Union. Collectively, the G-20 economies account for more than 80 percent of the global gross national product (GNP), 80 percent of world trade, and two-thirds of the world’s population. Whether called Carnivals Against Capitalism, Global Street Parties, Stop the City (London’s Wall Street) demonstrations, or Occupy, blocking streets to prevent business-as-usual are a growing international phenomenon to protest government policies.
