upcoming Ottawa events around the WTO

This email contains info on three upcoming "events" around the WTO:

1. Action for Nov. 30
2. Meeting to make banners, Nov 28
3. Radical Reading on the WTO, Nov 29

1. Action for Nov. 30

Last night about 10 people met and we decided on the following plan for Nov 30:
 -  meet at Parliament Hill at 11am on Nov. 30th (since other things have
already been organized for then).  
- we will have a big banner and signs that say something along the lines
of: "Parliament has been closed due to takeover by the WTO.  Please go to
the Business Council on National Issues which will be your future
government" -- we will put these up all over ther place
 - we will have tombstones for the victims of the WTO.  If a lot is
happening on the hill, we will plant them there.  But, we may also decide
to do a walk over the the BCNI, holding the banners and tombstone signs, or
into the market where we could likely reach a lot of people and so some
public education
- the OPIRG economic justice working group has been generating a lot of
public education materials that we will be able to give out.

PLease come and join us!!!!!!!!  


Also, everybody is invited to a poster and banner -making evening on Sunday
