Controversy over the costs of the G7: “81 million euros? Let’s use them for the poor!”

From 11 to 13 June the members of the G7 will gather in Great Britain, for the traditional summit between the most important world powers.

The landlord will obviously be Boris Johnson, which in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, will host the Heads of State and Government, from Mario Draghi a Joe Biden, on his first intercontinental voyage after his election as President.

For the region it will be the “most impressive security operation in local history”, as the police authorities explain. Costs will amount to £ 70 million (over € 81 million), with around 6,500 agents committed to protecting leaders.

Road traffic will be blocked and there will be block places distributed throughout the territory. Access to the airport as well as to the media center of Falmouth, where journalists will be hosted.

At the same time as the G7, previously authorized local protests will also take place in both Truro and Falmouth, an event that commits British law enforcement to a double effort.

A protest is also expected from Resist G7, a federation of antagonistic associations, which claims that “it is the G7 that represents a cost, not the people who demonstrate” and points out how in the area chosen for the summit one in three children live in poverty “And the residents are right to ask why all this money is being used for the G7, rather than for the poor.”
