Reportback from the WTO in Cancun and FTAA Kick-off

Sunday, Oct. 12th @ 6:00pm
616 E. Burnside (IWW Hall)
Come hear first hand accounts of people who were down in Cancun protesting the WTO. This will also be a send-off for people going to the FTAA meetings in Miami.

For those planning on going to Miami for the FTAA meetings Nov. 17-21, there will be a meeting on Thurs., Oct. 23 @ 6:00pm at 616 E. Burnside (IWW Hall).
Come hear first hand accounts from those who were in Cancun protesting the WTO. Hear stories about the marches, the camps, the people and the movement. Two (or more) people who were down there for these events will join us for an evening of discussion, a slideshow, and movement building.

The success developing nations had in causing the negotiations in Cancun to collapse is unforgettable, as is the amount of support that people from around the world expressed. This event will give people an opportunity to hear more about what peole were thinking, some of the tactics used, and how this ties into the overall global justice movement.

For those planning on going to Miami for the FTAA meetings Nov. 17-21, there will be a meeting on Thurs., Oct. 23 @ 6:00pm at 616 E. Burnside (IWW Hall). This will be an opportunity to see who else from Portland is planning on going, share information about the actions planned for that week, and help figure out how to bring the experiences in Miami back to our community and use them to educate others and strengthen the movement.
