Join the growing movement to build Peoples’ Alternatives to an economy that serves the richest and has failed the poor. The rich have put everyone's future at risk. It's time to take the wheel. We, the ordinary people, have the answers.

Sign the call to action to remake our broken economies

Across the world, Governments and International Financial Institutions continue to follow an economic model that has consistently failed the many for the last 50 years. Reduced public spending imposed by this model has left devastating impacts on people’s lives as the cost of living rises, public services are underfunded, and debt repayments are prioritised over the rights and needs of the people. It has led us to this point of crisis for people and the planet.

We are a wide range of activists, artists, social movements, unions and civil society organisations mobilising people around the world to claim our stake in remaking our broken economy. We are calling on Governments and International Financial Institutions like the IMF and World Bank to cease the economic model that has been driving the inequality crisis by slashing the taxes on the rich, imposing austerity, underfunding public services and pushing countries into a debt trap.

Join the call to action and participate in pushing forward this agenda together this year.


The cost of living and inequality are on the rise and austerity measures implemented by our governments are only pushing us to breaking point. The climate crisis is already here.

Meanwhile, governments and financial institutions continue to pursue a destructive neo-liberal economic model that has already failed us. They push for tax cuts for the rich and corporations, cutting public services, and prioritising money over people, but not money for the people.

Their short-sighted pursuit of an ever growing, unsustainable economy has brought us to a tipping point. It’s time for an alternative economy that serves the people, not the elites.

That’s where Peoples’ Alternatives come in. We are making heard the demands that come from the people on the frontlines of inequality, those who are most affected. It’s about promoting real solutions, from real people, that really work. If the elites won’t fix inequality, together we will.

There is increasing realisation by people across class, race and gender that inequality is being driven by the existing neoliberal economic model. In this context, our people powered organising from the grassroots up is more urgent than ever to advance alternatives to the current trajectory.

The current trajectory we are on works for the few and not the majority. The solutions to the crisis cannot and should not be dictated to by the elites, the same elites who created the problem in the first place. What is needed are solutions that come from real people who are confronted by the challenges.


The Fight Inequality Alliance is coordinating Peoples’ Alternatives alongside many other movements, activists, artists, academics, and groups across the world. People’s Alternatives is anopen space for the growing inequality movement. Any group or individual who shares our vision is welcome to join.

No! The meeting taking place in Marrakech, Morocco is only the beginning. The vast majority of the organising and mobilising efforts will take place in your country over the coming months.

No we are not. The Fight Inequality Alliance is made up of social movements, NGOs, trade unions, community groups, activists, and artists from around the world fighting the root causes of inequality. However, some political figures, political parties and others may agree with some or all of our proposals. Everybody now says that tackling inequality is a problem and uses some of the language of the movement - that includes the IMF,World Bank, governments signing up to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (especially SDG 10 on fighting inequality), wealthy individuals, the Pope ,and many others. Despite this rhetorical agreement, there is no consensus on the systemic change that is needed to fight inequality.

The heart of Peoples’ Alternatives is large scale physical mobilisations where people on the frontlines of inequality can share their stories as well as create solutions with others. We aim to physically mobilise in over 60 countries across Africa, Latin America, Asia as well as Europe and North America. There will also be action happening digitally throughout the year, as well as globally at the World Bank and IMF Annual Meetings as one global focal point.

This all started at the same time as the Spring Meetings of the World Bank and IMF in April 2023.

Since then many more groups have joined the initiative for Peoples’ Alternatives and it continues to grow.

We have been organising Peoples’ Caravans since May to June 2023. There have been sub-national Peoples’ Assemblies already from May to July 2023, and national Peoples’ Assemblies from August to September. There will be People’s Tribunals and other events around the globe and in Marrakech from the 9th to 10th of October 2023 .

Beyond October, we see this energy and momentum continuing into further national and global action in 2024 and beyond.

Through the year, mass actions across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Global North will take place. Debates will be held and solutions will be created amongst people in their millions in person, on social media and through media. Peoples’ Caravans will move across countries holding popular education sessions and local discussions. Peoples’ Assemblies will be held at sub-national and national levels. Stories and demands will be heard at Peoples’ Tribunals, where the current system, including the role of the World Bank and the IMF will be scrutinised.

If you want to be part of this, sign up or contact us, and we will send you all the information you need to know about where in your country these actions will take place, or to organise a meeting with you to set an action together.

If we don’t rise up together on a global scale, with coordinated efforts, and send powerful messages to the rich and the power holders, the injustice of inequality is not going to change.

Movements around the globe are creating debate in the public sphere that in decades past were not taken with serious consideration. This is our moment to make change. Now is the time to come together.

Now more than ever, movements across the globe are putting into the public debate things that during decades will not even be considered seriously. Change takes time, and justice is rarely given but won.

Fight Inequality Alliance and many of our allies have been pushing this agenda nationally and globally for several years, achieving some progress. The demand to Tax The Rich is part of the Peoples’ Alternatives mission.

At the core of a new economic system must be a redistribution of wealth from the richest to the poorest globally, and within our societies. People are demanding universal public services, for women’s unpaid care work to be rewarded and redistributed, and for those most responsible for climate change to pay for the action needed to reverse its effects. The richest individuals and companies in our societies must pay their fair share as part of how power and wealth must be redistributed in our societies and globally.
