Globalize This! SF Organizing Meeting
Saturday, August 11 at 1:00 p.m.
Revolution Cafe in the Mission at 3248 22nd Street at Bartlett.
Globalize This! is a new group looking to coalesce activists, community organizers, and other organizations in the Bay Area in opposition to corporate globalization and so-called 'free trade' agreements.
Free trade institutions such as the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and treaties such as NAFTA and the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) are protecting wealth and solidifying the power of multinational corporations at the expense of the environment and workers around the world.
Globalize This! SF seeks to coordinate activities, events, actions, and public forums that will help raise awareness about the negative impacts of neo-liberal policies, develop innovative campaigns to build a diverse activist base and deliver concrete results in the struggle against the corporate globalization agenda, and work in solidarity with other anti-neoliberalism groups world-wide.
It's about fighting against so-called 'free trade' and 'globalization.' It's about opposing policies that grant greater powers to wealthy international investors and large corporations. It's about struggling against international pharmaceutical companies that want to use 'free trade' agreements to protect their patents and prevent poor people from getting the medication they need. It's about opposing trade agreements that create exclusive rights for Northern capitalist nations to export their
And it's about fighting for workers' rights, the environment, the rights of indigenous peoples throughout the Americas. It's about defending poor people's access to free and affordable medicine and health care. It's about protecting our natural resources from corporate plunder, and it's about refocusing the global debate on human need. It's about globalizing our citizenship to see our own interconnectedness with all peoples of the world.
It's about being creative and defiant. And it's about being an active force of change.
It's about making a difference in the time that we are given on this planet.
