G20 Summit - Profit and Protest

Heads of state and presidents of the most powerful industrial countries and emerging economies enjoy complete privacy at regular G20 summits, where they meet to negotiate economic interests. But the guest list is exclusive: poorer countries and representatives from social movements are not invited. In this four-minute video, learn about the backdrop of the G20 summit in Hamburg, which took place in the summer of 2017.

Closed Society- The G20 is like a private function to which only the wealthiest countries are invited; poorer nations cannot attend. Civilians and social movements are also excluded, despite being the most affected by negotiations.
For host cities and their inhabitants, summits usually mean closed-off streets, police checks, restricted freedom of movement, and closed shops. This video depicts the backdrop of the G20 summit and the counter-protest that took place.
