RN: another forum for resistance: WTO mtg. in Seattle


Jan Slakov

Dear RN list,    Feb. 24

I got this message from the WILPF-news e-mail list. 

It looks like the WTO meeting in Seattle will be a focus for INTERNATIONAL
resistance to corporate globalization.

We should think about what kind of resistance we hope will manifest itself
there and help to make that happen.

all the best, jan

Dear Sister,

The World Trade Organisation is meeting in Seattle which is in the north
west of the USA, November 29-December 3, 1999.

Just like when APEC was meeting in Vancouver, an international
presence is important to protest such meeting effectively.

I am having too much email traffic to cope with at the moment
(up to 100 messages per day).  I wonder if there are WILPF women who
would like  to monitor and contribute our globalisation message to those also
working to oppose globalisation, and protest at this event.  The list is
described in more detail below.

Please could a few women volunteer?  Email is a great way to bridge the
geographical distances and share some of the workload too!!!

love felicity

You are already a member of our email action alert list for the upcoming
WTO Ministerium meeting in Seattle November 29-December 3.  However, some
people wanted a more open discussion list, so we've created one.  You can
join the new list by going to our web site at:

The new list will allow open discussions.  Each member of the list may
send email to the entire lise.  While this is great for discussion, it may
clog your inbox, so join wisely.

We will continue to operate the action alert list as well.  This list,
which you are already subscribed to, will have about 2-4 posts per month
until closer to the event.

It's up to you to choose which lists you want to be a part of.  You can be
a part of either or both.
