Trading Wilderness roadshow with Danny Dolinger in Eugene tomorrow July 17

Fun and informative event with focus on global forest destruction tomorrow in Eugene. Local singer/songwriter Danny Dolinger performs. There will be an opportunity to discuss current local forest issues as well.
TRADING WILDERNESS
Globalization's assault on the world's forests
With folk singer-songwriter - Danny Dolinger

Wednesday, July 17th, 7:00 pm
Location: First United Methodist Church, 1376 Olive, Eugene.

Join us for a national roadshow focused on the impact that international trade agreements--like those governed by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the proposed Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA)--are having on forests and global biodiversity.

These trade institutions are rapidly advancing from their basic origins of regulating tariffs and quotas to setting broad guidelines for human health, worker safety, and environmental protection. Sadly, under the influence of multinational corporations, these new international standards constitute ceilings for social and environmental concerns, where safeguards must be minimized, not enhanced.

The preservation of the planet's remaining forests is one critical area where these trade deals pose a serious threat. An exploration of these issues will be accompanied by powerful and compassionate folk music, and an opportunity for community sharing about related issues.

The program features:
--Jason Tockman, International Trade Director for American Lands Alliance
--Folk singer/songwriter Danny Dolinger from Eugene, Oregon
--Forum for the sharing of local issues and fair trade campaigns

Location: First United Methodist Church, 1376 Olive, Eugene.

Donations of $0-3 requested. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
