Even if the WTO moves or postpones it s meeting we- and people around
the world will- go ahead with our actions.

Two years after its defeat in Seattle the World Trade Organization
(WTO) will meet again, November 9-12, in Doha, Qatar,an isolated
Persian Gulf dictatorship, in the hopes of shutting out massive global
opposition. In response, people across the globe are localizing their
resistance to once again stop the WTO s destructive  free trade  agenda.

After the tragedies of September 11, as the world mourns, as the US
government bombs Afghanistan, as racist attacks take place, as our
freedoms come under fire, and as the government manipulates this
tragedy to push  free trade  including dangerous new =WTO agree-ments at
the November meeting, it is now more important than ever to stand up for
global justice as the foundation for real security.

Our work for global justice is inseparable from our local community
efforts against the day-to-day impact of the global system at the root
of our social, economic and ecological problems: environmental racism,
skyrocketing incarceration, attacks on immigrant rights, housing
displacement, low wages, lousy working conditions and cuts in
social services.

On Sat. Nov. 10 we will support the local environmental justice
movement s fight against toxic pollution from Chevron and other
industries in Richmond, and for zero dioxin emissions, meaningful local
control through an Industrial Safety Ordinance and compensation for
damage to residents  and workers  health.

Petrochemical giants like Chevron epitomize the corporations that
benefit from the WTO and its  free trade  policies, devastating local
communities and environments across the globe from Richmond and the Bay
Area to Nigeria and around the world. Nov. 10 is the anniversary of the
execution of 9 Nigerian environmental leaders, including Ken Saro Wiwa.


Oil is both the essential fuel of WTO-led corporate globalization and
the underlying strategic US government and corporate interest behind the
War in the Middle-East.

Another world is possible and a global & local movement is rising up
to make it happen. Join us!
