Announcing a new Meetup for The Toronto Zeitgeist Movement Group!

What: G20 Meetups

When: Saturday, June 26,[masked]:00 AM

Where: OISE parkette - if you're late please look for us on University Ave near the entrance to Queen's Park

Hi everyone!

As most of you are well aware, the G20 will be here in Toronto from June 25th-27th. As members of the Zeitgeist movement, this offers us a wonderful opportunity to connect with people and inform them about the Venus Project solution which addresses the vast majority of people's concerns all at once!

Rather than go to the protest with a mix of anger and rage as politicians and economists decide the fate of the human race, our group will be out there trying to put a positive spin on things. We will have a tent at or near Queen's park on both the 26th and 27th where we will be handing out DVDs, giving out fruit, flyers, business cards and of course HUGS! Of course our primary objective is to interact with as much of the public as possible and inform them about the proposals put forth by the Venus Project. While we are not interested in protesting ourselves, the individuals who choose to protest are interested in change and, we hope, will be open to hearing new and creative ideas for solving the world's ailments in a constructive way so this is really an ideal audience for our movement.

If you would like to join us at our tent you will be more than welcome. We will have a mix of Toronto members as well as some out-of-town guests at our tent all trying to do their part to expand the movement here in Toronto and throughout the world. If addressing the public isn't your thing, we can always use photographers who can contribute to the Toronto newsletter (which is in the works) and/or the international newsletter (which is also on the verge of release). Your ideas are also welcome of course!

Aside from the actual G20 protests, there are many events going on throughout next week that I would encourage everyone to partake in to listen, educate yourself on the issues and interact with others. The main site to see these events is:

If you happen to be interested in wind farms Strand Energy (http://www.strandenergy.ca) is also putting on a seminar called "Support Silent Wind Power" on June 23rd at 1:30 pm at the Centre for Social Innovation, 215 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON, Canada M5T 2C7, Unit 120 (Ground Floor Mezzanine). This is a free event and offers "a real, practical, working, turn-key solution" for Toronto. Come see and hear about this world-beating Canadian technology and SUPPORT SILENT WIND POWER.

Finally (!) the Venus Project has confirmed they will be hosting a lecture in Toronto on October 2nd from 4-6pm. To purchase tickets please do so online at http://zeitgeisttoronto.eventbrite.com/. We believe this event will easily sell out based on initial ticket sales so if you are interested be sure to purchase them as soon as you can!!

Hope to see everyone during the G20 and thanks for listening!!

Cheers,
Ryan
