Workshops and plenaries included topics such as WTO, Food Sovereignty and Alternatives to Globalization; Defending Water Commons; and Building Solidarity Amongst Garment, Farm and Other Migrant Workers from San Francisco to Hong Kong.

In the evening, nearly two hundred Korean farmers—wearing their trademark straw hats and beige vests inscribed with anti-WTO slogans—assembled in the street next to a Sogo department store in Causeway Bay. Most of them sat on the ground holding lit candles while several farmers offered more candles to crowds of curious onlookers.
