Hey all, next month my hometown and continued residence of Pittsburgh, PA is hosting the G-20 summit; a huge world stage. I will definitely be there amidst the protesters, but wanted to know your thoughts. In a high-security situation like this, what are the chances that we, as citizens, get to voice our opinions? What opportunities are realistic in the way of debate over global issues? I will be curious to hear feedback. Because most of you live in New York, New Jersey and other surrounding areas, come on out. The drive isn't that bad. We are about to witness history!

How did this work out for you?

This got me doing some brief reading on g-20 summits (yay for sparking interest!).

Brian, has the g-20 summit done any good since they started in 2008?
