SF Bay Area Global Action Aginst the WTO Globalize Justice Not War Friday November 9, 12 Noon Justin Herman Plazza, San Francisoco foot of Market St. (Embarcadero BART) Two years after its defeat in Seattle the World Trade Organization (WTO) will meet again, November 9-12, in Doha, Qatar, an isolated Persian Gulf dictatorship, in the hopes of shutting out massive global opposition. In response, people across the globe are localizing their resistance to once again stop the WTO\'s destructive \"free trade\" agenda. After the tragedies of September 11, as the world mourns, as the US government prepares for war, as racist attacks take place, as our freedoms come under fire, and as the government manipulates this tragedy to push free trade --including dangerous new WTO agreements-- at the November meeting, it is now more important than ever to stand up for global justice as the foundation for peace. Even if the WTO delays its meeting in Qatar, we will go ahead with our actions. Our work for global justice is inseparable from our local community efforts against the day-to-day impact of the global system at the root of our social, economic and ecological problems: environmental racism, skyrocketing incarceration, attacks on immigrant rights, housing displacement, low wages, lousy working conditions and cuts in social services. Another world is possible and a global & local movement is rising up to make it happen. Join us! Action for Local/Global Justice Cosponsored by (to date): West County Toxics Coalition, Communities for a Better Environment, Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, Freedom Rising Affinity Group, Art and Revolution, Project Underground, Solidarity, Left Turn, Bridges, Revel Alliance Affinity Group, Cultural Links, Bay Area Police Watch, Greenaction, , East Bay Peace Action, JustAct, Books Not Bars
