The fate of 6 billion lies in the hands of 29

Come join us for creative street theatre to make a highly visible 
point about whose agenda this conference serves and what it 
means for the rest of us.

More information to follow.

The OECD states in their conference outline that: "global electronic 
commerce has far-reaching implications for the nature of work, 
daily life and the role of governments.  However, if society as a 
whole is to fully benefit from the opportunities offered by electronic 
commerce, business, citizens and countries will need common 
frameworks to guide it s innovation and growth".  

As we know, the only ones that will control this vital piece of global 
relations (ie. Internet)  will yet again be investors/ corporations!
