Council of Canadians chairperson Maude Barlow writes in Edmonton's Vue Weekly on "the mass demonstrations 10 years ago in Seattle against the World Trade Organization" and the ongoing WTO agenda.
She highlights, "This week in Geneva, and later in Copenhagen, the Council of Canadians will once again join with thousands of farmers, fishers, civil society groups, environmentalists, social justice activists and leaders from the Global South to demand climate justice and a reversal on global trade talks."
She concludes, "I can't think of a better way to celebrate the 'Battle in Seattle' - can you?"
