Teach-In on the World Trade Organization.

The WTO? What is It?

Sunday, November 14, bring friends and family to learn what the World Trade Organization is and what it means to our community.

How can a World Trade Organization challenge and strike down critically important laws passed by our elected representatives that protect our public health, the natural environment, human rights and national sovereignty claiming these laws unfairly restrict trade? If you don't believe this is possible, you can learn the astonishing facts at this community Teach-In.

Come to the Davis Community Teach-In on the WTO, Sunday, 2:00 -5:00 p.m, Blanchard Room, Yolo Country Library, 14th and B Streets, refreshments will be served.

Come learn what is on the agenda when trade ministers from 134 nations meet in Seattle Nov. 30 to Dec. 3 to negotiate new laws especially for agriculture and forestry, imperiling Northwest forests and small farmers all over the world.

Come learn what the future agenda may include if these trade representatives have their way. The plan is to privatize all services--police, fire, teachers, government workers, and to privatize and commodify all remaining resources including the sale and transportation of drinking water.

  • Don Kegley, United Steelworkers of America, "locked out" with 2900 workers at Maxxam's Kaiser Aluminum in Spokane for over a year who helped form the new Alliance for Sustainable Jobs and the Environment;
