hey, what ever happened to the mai?

don't worry, the pro-capital trade liberalization 1999 agenda is well
underway with the following events planned:

march/april - Canadian government is holding "public" hearings in
preparation for canada's pariticaption in the fall meeting of the world
trade organization in seattle (late november)

april - ministerial meeting of trade ministers for countries participating
in negotiation of the free trade area of the americas agreement.

to organize direct actions targetting financial institutions on june 18)

sept - apec conference in new zealand

november - early in the month there will be a round of ftaa meetings in
ottawa; late in the month the wto meets in seattle

these are some of the highlites.  rest assurred that the rich are using
these forums to inflict further harm on working people and the poor all
around the world.  take comfort in the thought that at these forums, plans
will be discussed which will further poison the planet.

take together to stop the trade liberalizers.
