It is crunch time now in Bali. As governments intensify their efforts to iron out the final elements of Bali deal, civil society organizations and social movements from the Philippines have stepped up their efforts to amplify the peoples’ demands in Bali.
We demand the rejection of the inequitable and unjust Bali Package. This package will not advance the interest of the Philippines to support its farmers and will undermine the efforts to attain food self-sufficiency.

Bali, Indonesia -- Leaders of Philippine civil society organizations came to Bali on the occasion of the 9th Ministerial Meeting of the World Trade Organization to pressure their government to suspend all its commitments to the WTO and other free trade agreements in the aftermath of supertyphoon Haiyan/Yolanda.
