Come hear first hand accounts from those who were able to go down to Cancun and be a part of the resistance to the WTO ministerial meetings. This will also be a sendoff event for those planning on going to the FTAA meetings in Miami (November 19-22).

For those planning on going to Miami, we are having a planning meeting Thursday, October 23 @ 6:00pm, 616 E. Burnside. This meeting will be an opportunity for people to coordinate, discuss plans for how to bring the experiences from Miami back to the community, and to share knowledge of what will be happening in Miami, along with some other details.
