An Open Letter to Leaders of the Western Hemisphere.



CANCEL THE MIAMI FTAA-ALCA NOW


by Los Jaguares de Cancun Libre



ANNOUNCE THE CARNIVAL AND CANCEL THE FARCE: We Need To Have A Real Meeting to Mobilize Civil and Uncivil Society



DEAR LATIN AMERICAN NATIONS AND THOSE OF THE CARIBBEAN:



CANCEL THE MIAMI FTAA, END THE FARCE, AND ISOLATE THE US IN ITS OWN SHIT!



Cancun was a great victory for all those opposed to the Fourth World War (4WW), a war waged relentlessly across the globe by a few million lovers of greed in the US-EU Empire, a war waged against the rest of the worlds billions and its ENDANGERED natural world.



On September 12, 2003, a group of internationalists dropped a huge banner from atop a 300 foot high construction crane above the WTO convention centre in Cancun. We said Que Se Vayan Todos - They Should All Go. A few days later the Kenyan delegation had had enough of the US-EU arrogance and with the support of most of the poor countries of the world and most NGOs they walked out of the WTO, ending this farcical meeting.



As we said at the time of our banner drop: WE just know that the WTO is not concerned with world trade, but with world slavery. The same goes for the ALCA - FTAA free trade zone of the Americas. We have risked our lives in solidarity with those whose lives are at risk and we will continue to do so, in Mexico City, in Miami and in Europe.



Another Future is Necessary!


Let us take the Cancun victory forward and win the battle to end the 4WW before the hegemonic policies of the US-EU Empire kill more millions everywhere. Again we call for the WTO, FTAA-ALCA and NAFTA to be disbanded and replaced with an open forum to address the many problems faced everyday by most people: The Problems Inherent to Capitalism and Social Exclusion. Until then the struggle continues.



Hold high the symbols of the Corn Plant and the Red Fist. The Corn symbolizes the importance of farmers, the need for assured water supplies and to ban Genetically Modified Frankenstein Foods (GMOs) to protect our future food security.



The Red Fist symbolizes demands for dignity for all indigenous people and the workers, all of whom have their culture and livelihoods threatened with colonization by global corporations.



Instead of a Corporate, Colonial, Imperialist Surrender Treaty (ALCA) or farcical debates in Miami - The World Needs a real meeting of equals in Caracas or Buenos Aires or Port au Prince to agree on how to move forward with new priorities of regional integration, the economics of the local, and education for a solidarity economy. How to survive the imminent backlash of the US-EU Empire should also be on any agenda.



To Miami We Must Take Our Message and Break Through the Corporate Media Shields



We are planning new occupations and daring aerial actions before and during the Miami FTAA conference. We join the screams of millions who identify with the Korean farmer activist who died in Cancun to protest the WTO and its genocidal agriculture policies. Our lives will be hanging on the line - literally on a long rope - and we ask for your support and your presence so that we can make these actions as big and as safe as possible.





Either way, here we go!


We cannot sit at home while the rich wage economic war on the majority of the people on earth -

MEXICO Y Internationalistas



A key learning and growing experience in Cancun, Mexico at the WTO-OMC Meet was the vulnerability to Mexican students and activists from massive police oppression. We call for the formation of two new organizations to offer solidarity and sacrifice with Mexican activists:



1. An Emergency Response Network to respond quickly to any crisis, attacks or needs of Mexican activists. This would include travelling quickly to hot spots in Mexico and rapidly organizing a major response within the US and other countries.



2. A Mexican Mobilization Pledge: to mobilize large numbers of US and other citizens to travel to Mexico to offer support and protection to activists there for planned large demonstrations.



Please contact  Ecosolidarity@yahoo.com to participate or fund these groups.

ANNOUNCING A FANTASTIC NEW MOVIE OF


GLOBALIZED RESISTANCE : THE FOURTH WORLD WAR - 4WW



"Whenever the system encounters obstacles to their process, whenever the people resist, it responds with a war that pulverizes, liquefies, terrorizes. A war without a battlefield, a war without identifiable sides. A war that is everywhere, a 1000 civil wars, a war without end, the 4th World War. ... |On one side is a system of terrifying violence and on the other side are all of us... all of us who will stop this war." La Quatro Guerra  http://www.bignoisefilms.com/



"The Fourth World War is a total war, economic, social, political, cultural and military. Everywhere today, every aspect of our lives is being violently reorganized. Everywhere the system is at work dissolving us, our labor, our land, our culture into flows of capital."



4WW -Four WARS ONE World: A FILM:

La Quatre GUERRA



From the front-lines of conflicts in Mexico, Argentina, South Africa, Palestine, Korea, 'the North' from Seattle to Genova, and the 'War on Terror' in New York, Afghanistan, and Iraq. It is the story of men and women around the world who resist being annihilated in this war.



While our airwaves are crowded with talk of a new world war, narrated by generals and filmed from the noses of bombs, the human story of this global conflict remains untold.



"The Fourth World War" brings together the images and voices of the war on the ground. It is a story of a war without end and of those who resist.



The product of over two years of filming on the inside of movements on five continents, "The Fourth World War" is a film that would have been unimaginable at any other moment in history. Directed by the makers of "This Is What Democracy Looks Like" and "Zapatista", produced through a global network of independent media and activist groups, it is a truly global film from our global movement.



The Fourth World War will be launched this Fall and begin touring worldwide. Check our calendar for updates and screening times. Contact us at: 4ww (at) bignoisetactical.org to help organize screenings.



Featuring; Music from Manu Chao, Moosaka, Cypher AD, DJ C
