Solidarity WITH DEMONSTRATIONS IN CANCUN
SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE WTO
SATURDAY 13TH SEPTEMBER
3.30PM, OUTSIDE CITY HALL, BELFAST
In the last few hours Lee Kyung-hae, a South Korean farmer and activist, has killed himself at the fences in Cancun behind which the WTO are meeting. His suicide was designed to highlight the plight that farmers across the world are facing thanks to the policies of the WTO and against their illegitimate meeting in Cancun.
Already tens of thousands of other farmers, Workers, students and peasants have been converging on the city to oppose the policies of the WTO. Globalise Resistance have called a demonstration outside City Hall in Solidarity with those demonstrating and we are encouraging as many people as possible to join us against the organisation which puts profit before the needs of people across the world. People should bring down placards, pots and pans, flags, banners… basically anything to make a lively demo.
These people aren’t only demonstrating for their own livelihoods, they are also demonstrating against the water charges we face here at home, the bin charges down south and against the sell off of our schools and hospitals.
