>From June 23-25th 2003 the Ministers of Trade, Agriculture and Environment
from 180 nations, including all member states of the World Trade
Organization (WTO), will meet in Sacramento California at a summit hosted
by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), USAID, and the US
State Department. This meeting will be a stepping stone to the September
WTO Ministerial in Cancun and the Summit of the Americas scheduled for
Miami in November. This meeting will be held the same time as an "Expo On
Agricultural Science and Technology" which will be showing off the
"benefits" of transnational agribusiness and biotechnology.
With this meeting and Expo the United States through WTO is planning on
forcing its agricultural agenda on the rest of the world. Agriculture in
the most debated issue in the WTO, and for good reason, food affects
everyone world wide. Yet both the ministerial meeting and the Expo are not
open to the public. The rest of the world has no say. We can not allow
these bastards to impose their rules on the rest of the world.
The reasons for shutting down the WTO and putting an end to neoliberalism
are far too many to name here. So much suffering around the world has
already been caused by neoliberalism, now they are trying to add even more
through their agricultural agenda, and their forcing of the biotech menace
upon the world. Concerned activists from northern California and around the
world will gather in the streets on Sacramento and tell the biotech
industry and the WTO to go to hell.
The day after the invasion of Iraq started activists shut down San
Francisco. We are calling on individuals and affinity groups to stop the
invasion of our food supply with a militant shut down of Sacramento for 3
There will be spokescouncil meetings every night from June 16th, through
June 26th. Come with a plan of action and be ready for a
capitalist-smashing good time.

[Ed. note:
".......We are a coalition of anti-authoritarian anti-capitalist
individuals and
afinity groups from northern california, including sacramento, organizing
around the meeting.]
