London & Beirut Press Conferences Addressing the Global Economic Crisis (Fri 3rd Apr)
Since 1999, G20 summits have taken place and formulated financial plans for the world – plans that brought crisis and calamities to human beings and the world. They claim that through these summits they will save the world even thought it is inconceivable that the wolf would save its own prey! The world leaders of the G20 will meet in London, the spiritual capital of Capitalism and its corporations, on Thursday 2nd April 2009. Instead of formulating a plan to rescue the world from the financial crisis, they only devise solutions that aim to increase the wealth of the rich capitalists even if that further impoverishs the poor.
Meanwhile, Hizb ut-Tahrir, the global Islamic political party, has convened two emergency press conferences in Beirut and London on Friday 3rd April 2009, a day after the London G20. At both press conferences, Hizb ut-Tahrir will launch its new book "Towards a Tranquil Safe World under the Shade of the Economic System of Islam". The book examines the global economic crisis, explains its reality, critically examines its symptoms and exposes the flaws in the solutions proposed by the flagbearers of Capitalism. The book concludes by illustrating the correct solutions to the economic crisis from Islam – solutions that are from the Creator of the universe and the Creator of mankind, who knows what is best for His creation.
At the press conferences, there will be speeches in Arabic and English outlining Hizb ut-Tahrir’s solutions to the economic crisis and its response to the London G20 summit. There will be an opportunity for open discussion and debate and both press conferences will be broadcast live on the Internet.
