The Activities are aimed at opposing WTO agenda to force through “all aspects of the Bali Package”, the multilateral killer of farmers during this Ministerial Conference. Further liberalization of trade is not only on the agenda, it is the agenda, with corporate agribusiness looking to destroy the few public policies that still protect some national food systems.
Join us and mobilise struggles against the WTO and make this 10th WTO
Ministerial Conference the last one.
NO MORE WTO! FOOD SOVEREIGNTY NOW! GLOBALIZE STRUGGLE! GLOBAL HOPE!
