No WTO: Action for Local and Global Justice

Richmond, California -- Two years after its defeat in Seattle the World Trade Organization is meeting again in Doha, Qatar. In response, people across the globe are localizing their resistance to once again stop the WTO's destructive "free trade" agenda.

In Richmond, hundreds of activists marched two miles from the BART Station to Chevron's Point Richmond oil refinery. Petrochemical giants like Chevron epitomize the corporations that benefit from the WTO and its "free trade" policies, devastating local communities and environments from Richmond and the Bay Area to Nigeria and around the world.
