Hi! I'm writing to you from Cincinnati, site of the upcoming Protests in Cincinnati, Ohio against the Trans Atlantic Business Dialogue. Cincinnati was picked because it is in the middle of the midwest, a conservative city, and is also a corporate town. Cincinnati houses the world headquarters for Proctor & Gamble and Chiquita Banana, which are all very close to where the TABD summit will be held. There is also a GAP and Starbucks in the same building as the Omni Netherlands. There are several themes with which to protest corporate globalization while
in Cincinnati. Gap (sweatshops/old growth forest issues); Starbucks (a living wage for coffee growers around the world!); Chiquita (worker's rights); Proctor and Gamble (Animal Rights). But, these aren't the only themes. Please check http://www.n16.org/ for more information
on CDAC's plans in November (includes housing, medical, carpool message board, TABD info, local info, Art and Rev. and more). We hope you can make it to Cincinnati for N16. If your organization would like to endorse CDAC's
