As part of a global day of action during the WTO ministerial in Cancun, Mexico. We are calling on our community to come out with us and:
· Say no to the WTO and FTAA and all trade deals that attack workers rights, the environment, or democracy
· Oppose privatization of essential public services, such as the post office, education, DEQ, health care
· Stand in solidarity with the mobilizations against the WTO in Cancun, and elsewhere
· Say no to protecting global corporate interests through militarization
It is our responsibility as a concerned community to make our voices heard, to show our strength in numbers and to let our government and international overseeing bodies know that we are prepared to stand up for the basic rights of people, not only in our own community, but across borders. We know from experience that trade agreements only further impoverish countries and peoples already struggling, that they destroy local economies and cause detrimental environmental problems. This march and rally is an opportunity to join together with others around the world as we recognize a global day of action.
