The International Forum on Globalization and New College of California present: FROM CANCUN TO MIAMI: REPORT-BACK FROM WTO MINISTERIAL IN CANCUN TO INFORM AND INSPIRE THE MOBILIZATION AGAINST THE FTAA MINISTERIAL IN MIAMI Thursday, November 6th, 7-9 PM New College Theater, 777 Valencia Street, San Francisco Please Join: Antonia Juhasz, International Forum on Globalization Lisa Hoyos, Cal Coalition for Fair Trade/OWINFS Alberto Saldamando, International Indian Treaty Council Colin Rajah, National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights Deborah James, Global Exchange Anuradha Mittal, Food First Cynthia Josayma, Pacific Environment Starhawk, RANT collective (invited) On Sunday, September 14, the 5th ministerial meeting of the World Trade Organization (WTO) collapsed. What happened in Cancun that led to the collapse? What were the policy debates between governments? What did peoples' movements want? What did corporations want? What strategies and tactics were used both inside and outside of the meeting that led to the collapse? What worked on the streets? What worked in the suites? Most importantly, how does this inform what will happen in Miami when the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) ministerial takes place on November 20-21? The collapse in Cancun is being used by the Bush Administration to further justify its rejection of multilateralism in all forms. It is therefore crucial to demonstrate that opposition in Cancun was against the policies of corporate globalization, rather than just one of the many institutions that enforce them. The FTAA ministerial in Miami is now even more critical than before. It is both an opportunity to oppose the expansion of corporate globalization and to demonstrate the that the movement demanding real alternatives is growing and uniting world-wide. Please join us for this important discussion. Questions? Contact the International Forum on Globalization at 415.561.3480 or www.ifg.org
