The heads of the world came in, the protesters were full of anger, and Brisbane went all out to prepare for the public holiday.

This weekend the capital of Queensland will host the G20 summit, welcoming leaders and their entourage from all over the world.

The gathering of 20 major economic powers over the weekend will be the biggest event held in Australia and New Zealand. At the same time, it also means one thing-protesters can find their goals!

Some protesters started to block the streets early, but more were prepared to raise their voices-even intend to damage property-in order to disrupt order and vent their anger, and challenge the policies of those 20 countries.


So why is it such a fuss?

Not everyone is willing to welcome these top leaders with open arms, and more than 20 protest groups plan to express their dissatisfaction.

Some activists have already started gatherings to fight for the treatment of Australian Aborigines.


The government authorities have detected fake surveillance cameras in the safe area, which they believe are designed to provide information against the G20 summit.

Some protesters-including the Plan B organization-plan to damage public property, social and sporting events. They speak out and discuss openly.

The anger of these groups against power permeates everything from environmental destruction to the gap between rich and poor.

Their website is also full of suggestions. What actions can be taken to attract attention? What if a supporter is arrested?


Who will come?

The G20 summit will gather the world’s top 20 economic powers.

Including 19 countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States and the European Union.

But it is not just these leaders who come to Brisbane.

There are 4000 delegation members and 3000 media people who will gather in Brisbane to report on this event.


When will they arrive?

The world leaders and their entourage have already begun to arrive in Brisbane.

South African President Jacob Zuma flew to the city for the first time on Wednesday.


US President Barack Obama only arrived on Saturday night, but during his stay he will go to the University of Queensland to give a speech.

British Prime Minister Cameron flew directly north after visiting the Federal Parliament in Canberra on Friday.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit the Federal Parliament on Monday and Tuesday respectively after attending the weekend summit.

What wishes will they achieve?

The G20 will be a grand dialogue event, but Prime Minister Albert hopes that there will be some tangible results this weekend.

The hot topic will be economic growth, promoting employment growth.


Australia’s goal is to grow by 2% annually for the next four years.

Tax evasion is also on the agenda, and Australia hopes to crack down on multinational companies that do not pay their fair taxes.

Don't count on the topic of climate change, but there will be some discussions about energy efficiency.

The summit will also be a moment for the world to work together to combat Ebola and IS.
