On August 28, an anti-FTAA activist pied American Embassador Peter Allgeier,
co-president of the FTAA, during a press conference in Rio de Janeiro,
Brazil. The activist, a member of Bakers Without Borders,
released a note protesting the negotiations of the FTAA. The FTAA will
concentrate wealth, increase poverty, and destroy labor, consumer and
enviromental rights, said the note.
The protest also focused attention on the disregard Brazil's government has
shown for a September 2002 unofficial plebiscite in which over 10 million
people voted "No" to the FTAA. Last month, President Inacio Lula da Silva
said at a meeting with George Bush that negotiations will proceed and should
finish by 2005. Brazilian social movements and NGOs protest the continuation
of negotiations. The pieing comes just two weeks ahead of a WTO meeting in
Cancún, which will be met with massive protest.
