Subject: N16 - Protest the TABD - Cincinnati

Dear Fellow Activist/Organization:

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


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. US Corporate Globalization affects so many issues:


justice, indigenous rights (U'wa/Zapatistas -

NAFTA/FTAA/more), as a matter

of fact, so many issues we individually work on are related



Please check

for more information on CDAC's plans in November (includes


medical, carpool message board, TABD 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 (Cincinnati Direct Action Collective - N16)

Please help us advertise N16 by forwarding this to your

November! Please feel free to email CDAC at





November 16-18, the Trans Atlantic Business Dialogue (TABD)

will be having

their annual CEO conference in Downtown Cincinnati, Ohio at

the Omni

Netherlands Hotel. European Union Parliament, U.S.

congress, and more than

200 American and European CEOs and business leaders will

meet to talk about

issues that impact transatlantic trade and develop

recommendations on how

to best boost global trade and investment. The T.A.B.D.


recommendations that will set

the tone for World Trade Organization policy. Over 50% of


recommendations have been adopted for the WTO. One such

corporation in

attendance at the conference, BASF, who's plant in

Cincinnati blew up in

the early 1990's killing two workers, injuring many more

and also caused

millions of dollars in damage will help with these

negotiations! The TABD

claims to "offer an effective framework for enhanced

Cooperation between

the transatlantic business community and the governments of

the EU and US.

An informal process whereby European and American companies

and business

associations develop

joint EU-US trade policy recommendations, working together

with the

European Commission and U.S. administration." It's plain to

see that the

Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue means more money and

control in the

pockets of top CEO and

government officials so just like the WTO in Seattle and

the IMF/World Bank

in Washington DC demonstrations it is time to voice our

opposition. Join together and publicize the disastrous

effects of corporate

globalization to people both outside and inside the United

States. We need

to converse to world economic and business leaders that we

will not calmly

tolerate labor and agricultural annihilation before our

eyes. What is left

before us, our only hope for a just and equal society, YOU!

Start talking

to within communities about organizing affinity groups to

come and converge

in Cincinnati Ohio November 15,

16, 17, 18 to make aware the growing nature of these


institutions. Join in workshops and educational

demonstrations of real

democracy where we organize from the bottom up. Our

convergence upon

Cincinnati will be a symbol that we want to totally

eradicate and abolish

the injustice of global economic control by a few. No

longer shall human

life, animals and the environment be substituted for

personal gain! Come be

apart of mass demonstrations, direct action and civil

disobedience to show

the TABD that we will not tolerate their current policies

of global

takeover by institutions that cater profit before people.

Without a peoples

response to this matter we waive our right to practice the


process and put it into the T.A.B.D's hands. LETS!
