Message of the streets to world-wide the civil society;
To the all the press; The International Association
Político-Recreativa and without lucrative ends...
Confectioners Without Borders comes to greet the president
of the Conference of the Nations Joined for Commerce and
Development (UNCTAD), Rubens Ricupero, with a pie attack.
It is with special joy that we greet this economist heterodox
who arrived at the highest rank of the organism of the United
Nations dedicated to the defense of the countries "in

But who will be these "developing countries" that
Mr. Ricupero defends and its organization? Will
they be the millions of hungry villains who
circulate the streets of São Paulo, Johannesburg
or Bombay? Or, will they be Brazilian, South
African, or Indian entrepreneurs who want to be
promoted to the first world?

Since the birth of the industrial capitalism the
liberal ones promise to finish with the poverty
by means of economic growth. They say that by
making the economy grow, the poor ones little by
little will surpass the poverty without making it
necessary to distribute the wealth and to finish
with the inaquality-this is so essential to the
market competitiveness. It was this that we saw
in Brazil in century XX: one of the biggest
economic growth models of the world, and yet the
third worst distribution of income. Brazil is
the development model!

To celebrate the Brazilian success and to expand
for the whole world the illusion of the
development, we give homage to Mr. Rubens
Ricupero of the General Conference of the UNCTAD.
While we anxiously await the manifestations that
will be oppose the conference in São Paulo, we
greet its arrojo, its charisma and its
intransigent defense of the poor persons.

¡Que Se Vayan Todos (They All Must Go)!

Remembering the great anarchist Abelardo Barbosa,
We say farewell,
Confectioners Without Borders-Brazil

"O, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth,
That I am meek and gentle with these butchersŠ.
Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the pies of war."

-William Shakespeare

Look for "Pie Any Means Necessary: The BBB
Cookbook" in fine (and not so fine) bookstores,
cafes, bunkers, caves, and police station lockups
Or order it straight from the publisher, AK Press, via

"The Pie's the Limit," a delicious documentary
produced by the Whispered Media video collective,
features a cornucopia of political pie-throwings
in San Francisco and beyond; a brief history of
consumable comedy; behind the scenes interviews
with real underground pie tossers; corporate
media analysis, and in-your-face politics. Watch
in delight as a half dozen demagogues are served
up their just deserts! Order it via


The Biotic Baking Brigade.....coming soon to a
pie-o-region near you.
