Llamamiento a representantes de movimientos: Asamblea internacional de Beirut de los movimientos ant
17-19 de septiembre de 2004 Beirut, LíbanoDespués del falso ³traspaso² de la soberanía del 30 de junio, la ocupación militar, económica y política de Irak por parte de los Estados Unidos continúa, y, con ella, la desestabilización deliberada de toda la región. Al mismo tiempo, la administración Bush le ha dado al gobierno de Sharon manos libres para seguir con su política de asesinato de los palestinos y de construcción de un muro de apartheid para aislarles y controlares. Esto forma parte de la estrategia de Estados Unidos e Israel para ³resolver² la crisis palestina a través de la fuerza militar y de la subyugación.
Call for Representatives: Beirut International Assembly of Anti-War and Anti-Globalization Movements
17-19 September 2004, Beirut, Lebanon
Following the fake June 30 "handover" of sovereignty, the United States' military, economic and political occupation of Iraq continues and, along with it, the deliberate de-stabilisation of the region. At the same time, the Bush administration has given the Sharon government free reign to pursue a policy of assassinating the Palestinian people and building an apartheid wall to isolate and control them. This is part of the US-Israeli strategy to "resolve" the Palestinian crisis by military force and subjugation.
OUR WORLD IS NOT FOR SALE NETWORK CONFERENCE:DEVELOPING ALTERNATIVES TO CORPORATE-DRIVEN TRADE LIBER
28-30 May 2004 Bangkok, Thailand
Following the collapse of the WTO's Cancun Ministerial in 2003 and given the fact that negotiations in the WTO and in the Free Trade Area of the Americas are currently stalled, the neoliberal trade liberalizing agenda appears to be losing momentum. Negative impacts on development and the environment are increasingly recognized, including by developing country governments, who are refusing to move forward with negotiations until at least some of these impacts are recognized and dealt with. Critically however, many governments and others are discouraged from being even more outspoken about their worries for fear of what the alternative might be. Many are convinced by those free traders who argue that the only alternative to the WTO is the law of the jungle. This myth needs to be demolished. There is no reason why societies cannot choose to manage their economies in fairer, progressive, more environmentally sustainable and democratic ways.
