Why Mobilize to San Diego?
First, if you can, mobilize to Cancun. We must shut down the WTO.
From September 10 to 14, the World Trade Organization (WTO)
will hold its Fifth Ministerial meeting in Cancun, Mexico. Pushed
by multinational corporations, the United States, the European
Union, and other developed countries are seeking to launch a new
round of "free trade" negotiations and expand corporate
globalization - further eroding human rights, workers' rights,
environmental protections, and democracy - in the interest of
corporate control.

If you can't make it to Cancun...

Activists at the US/Mexico border will join with popular
movements in Mexico and their international allies to demand a
world that puts democracy and human dignity ahead of corporate
profits. Solidarity actions around the world will focus on
September 13 as a Worldwide Day of Action Against Corporate
Globalization and War.

We call on people in San Diego, California and throughout the
United States to join together at the San Diego/Tijuana border on
September 13th to resist the WTO and the failed model of
corporate globalization, and highlight the links between militarism
and "free trade," through a wide variety of creative means:
teach-ins, protests, direct action, street theater, cultural events
and public forums.

Convergence Schedule:
