Anti-capCall to shut down the Sacramento ministerial

by wombat Sunday, Apr. 20, 2003 at 4:39 PM

Come to Sacramento June 23-25th to shut down the WTO agricultural ministerial!!!

From June 23-25th 2003 the Ministers of Trade, Agriculture and Environment from 180 nations, including all member states of the World Trade Organization (WTO), will meet in Sacramento California at a summit hosted by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), USAID, and the US State Department. This meeting will be a stepping stone to the September WTO Ministerial in Cancun and the Summit of the Americas scheduled for Miami in November. This meeting will be held the same time as an "Expo On Agricultural Science and Technology" which will be showing off the "benefits" of transnational agribusiness and biotechnology.

With this meeting and Expo the United States through WTO is planning on forcing its agricultural agenda on the rest of the world. Agriculture in the most debated issue in the WTO, and for good reason, food affects everyone world wide. Yet both the ministerial meeting and the Expo are not open to the public. The rest of the world has no say. We can not allow these bastards to impose their rules on the rest of the world.

The reasons for shutting down the WTO and putting an end to neoliberalism are far too many to name here. So much suffering around the world has already been caused by neoliberalism, now they are trying to add even more through their agricultural agenda, and their forcing of the biotech menace upon the world. Concerned activists from northern California and around the world will gather in the streets on Sacramento and tell the biotech industry and the WTO to go to hell.

The day after the invasion of Iraq started activists shut down San Francisco. We are calling on individuals and affinity groups to stop the invasion of our food supply with a militant shut down of Sacramento for 3 days.

There will be spokescouncil meetings every night from June 16th, through June 26th. Come with a plan of action and be ready for a capitalist-smashing good time.
