Outside the offices of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Angel Place, 123 Pitt St, Sydney)

The WTO Ministerial Meeting will happen in Hong Kong from 13 - 18 December. In the tradition of Seattle and Cancun, civil society and developing countries are joining together to oppose the WTO agenda that prioritises corporate interests over people and the planet. This rally will coincide with a massive opening people's rally in Hong Kong.

Let's bring these negotiations out from behind closed doors! The Australian government is playing a key role in pushing changes to the negotiations of the WTO trade in services (GATS) agreement. These proposals threaten to include essential services, such as water, health and education, as tradeable commodities in the GATS. Let the Government know that essential services should be decided democratically at the local and national level and not signed away in trade agreements!

Come along and bring a friend and a banner from your organisation or a colourful banner you made yourself!
