NEXT STOP, MIAMI! Autonomous Festival For Humanity and Against the FTAA
Northeast FTAA Consulta When: Oct 31 to Nov 2, 2003 Where: Yale, New Haven, CT
Why: Because we are everywhere. There is a new left on the rise, a left
that seeks to change the world without taking power, a left that is almost
invisible to the gaze of the corporate media and that has been pushed to
the periphery of events such as the World Social Forum: the autonomous
left. We seek to make the invisible visible. We are part of a network of
solidarity around a caravan of representatives from autonomous social
movements in Brazil and Argentina. We are here to build connections and
solidarity between local and global movements for justice, and to learn
from their examples. Come learn about the consequences of the neoliberal
agenda (“the new colonialism”), the positive alternatives that have emerged
to challenge corporate globalization (“the most inspiring popular movement
since the Zapatistas”), and network, train, plan, and strategize for the
Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) Ministerial in Miami (Nov 17 to 21).
We can shut it down!

How: Food and housing will be provided. All housing will be with students
and community members, and all food will be vegan/vegetarian. We are
requesting a sliding scale $5 to $10 donation to cover food costs. Please
send registration form (at very end) to nhautonomists@yahoo.com. Necessary
logistics, like ride board, maps, etc, will be up soon on the website
http:// www.gpjo.org/yale.htm.
