We cordially invite:
all individuals and organizations interested in shutting down the OAS

representatives from different communities to gather and discuss the
formation and goals of a direct action network.

Conference goals:- develop strong regional coordinating groups=20
- agree on statement of principals
- coordinate a plan of direct action
- develop committee structures for coalition
- coordinated logistics for Days of Action
- diffusion of outreach and propaganda

Note: while there will be information sharing, networking, and a brief
intro to the OAS and FTAA organizing, this is not intended to be an
information session for the general public. We want you to come. But we
want people to come with some pre-planning of how they and their =
community
would like to be involved.

We expect people will come to this meeting with proposals and ideas for
action, and that they leave with the tools to go back and further =
organize
their communities for the Great Windsor Shut down of 2000 :-)

Logistics: The conference will take place from 11 to 7pm in downtown
Toronto, with food, billeting, and entertainment provided.

Please get back to us ASAP and let us know how many of you to expect,
whether you endorse the call to action or not, and generally how excited
you are about organizing for Windsor. (We can then tell you all the =
other
rad stuff going on around it.)

Call to Action:=20
OAS - Windsor, June 4-6

Please note organizer's meeting date change. Porfavor
noten cambio de dia.=20

Forward far and wide! Difundir por todas partes!=20

RESIST OAS!=20

The Organization of American States is a capitalist
mechanism for the North to further manipulate and
exploit the South in the interest of corporate profit.
The OAS works to ensure prosperity and stability for
the rich at the expense of the poor throughout the
Americas. The OAS parented the FTAA, the extension of
NAFTA across the entire hemisphere. These "agreements"
aim to eliminate international restrictions -forcing
countries to compete against each other in a rush to
the bottom. This means environmental, labour and human
rights policies are deregulated as soon as they
threaten corporate profit. Community initiatives,
local economies and so called "democracy" are crushed
in the capitalist grip.=20

Shut it Down!!!=20

HELP ORGANIZE A STRONG RESISTANCE TO THE OAS MEETING
