If it sounds absurd that a business like Wal-Mart could use an international court to challenge and overturn local land use, environmental, public health and gambling decisions, then you can’t afford to miss this discussion. Although the above headline has yet to hit the front page of the Press Democrat, U.S. commitments at the World Trade Organization (WTO) make the possibility all too real. Please join us for an evening with: Jesse Swanhuyser, California Coalition for Fair Trade & Human Rights and Laura Metune, Office of Senator Liz Figueroa. From small towns in Maine to Mississippi and from Los Angeles to New York, local officials are taking measures to protect their communities, their environment, their wage base and their tax dollars from the Wal-Martization of America and an expansive set of trade rules that have nothing to do with trade and everything to do with usurping local control. Sponsored by the Leadership Institute For Ecology and the Economy. $5 Donation (No one turned away for lack of funds.)
