World Ag Forum to meet in ST. Louis. Come shut it down!
Shut Down the World Agricultural Forum! Say NO to Corporate Greed and the Raping of the Seed!
Agriculture is the most fundamental industry of man, responsible for providing the food, water and shelter necessary for sustaining human life. Yet, each year an expanding world population increases the strain on dwindling land and water resources. Already, 800 million go without food to meet their basic nutritional needs and experts predict that by 2025 the world's population will have grown by an additional 3 billion, leaving two-thirds of the world's population to live in water-stressed areas.
We, revolutionary anti-capitalists in the midwest, see how agriculture and agribusiness play an important role in corpoprate globalization and the affects it has on biodiversity, rights of farmers, poverty and hunger, health, and on the Global South.
St. Louis (home of Monsanto), will be the host of the next WAF Congress on May 18-20, 2003. Join us in active resistance against the WAF. We want to give the CEOs of Agribusiness (and the many other corporate killers scheduled to be present) a very warm (not-)welcome.
Say NO to corporate globalization, privatization of Mother Earth's resources (like water!), biotechnology, brutal exploitation of organic and indigenous farmers of the Global South, the FTAA, the WTO, the IMF/WB, and capitalism!
Say YES to Mother Earth, biodiversity, rights of farmers all over the world, sustainable agriculture, and a world not dominated by the corporations!
Keep your eyes peeled and yor ears open for more to come...
