ATTENTION ACTIVISTS! STOP The WTO and the Anti-Life Practices and Polices of Agribusiness

European officials are resisting the insane policies of american agribusiness and the Bush administration is calling their refusal to admit genetically modified foods into their countries illegal. This development in association with protests could spell the end for the WTO! Converge on Sacramento and let your voice be heard. On June 22-25, Sacramento is an important destination for anyone concerned about genetically engineered foods, the rights of small farmers, and the environment and agricultural biotech companies controlling the world's food supply. This meeting will be a stepping stone to the September WTO Ministerial in Cancun and the Summit of the Americas on FTAA scheduled for Miami in November.
