CITIZENS MOBILIZATION AGAINST AMERICAN EMPIRE

Are you hungry for justice? Do you want to resist the WTO, US Empire and
Corporate Globalization? Are you fed up with genetically engineered trees,
food, fish, future? Do you believe that access to healthy food and clean
water is a fundamental human right?
CITIZENS MOBILIZATION AGAINST AMERICAN EMPIRE

Are you hungry for justice? Do you want to resist the WTO, US Empire and
Corporate Globalization? Are you fed up with genetically engineered trees,
food, fish, future? Do you believe that access to healthy food and clean
water is a fundamental human right?

From June 23-25 in Sacramento, the US Department of Agriculture, the
Agency for International Development, and the State Department are hosting government ministers from 180 nations and transnational corporate representatives to layout the US government and agribusiness' vision for the future of the world.

Their agenda? Genetically engineered foods, animals and forests and
terminator seeds... agribusiness that drives family farmers off the land,
hijacks the global food supply and starves the poor... food irradiation… privatization of water and corporate patents on indigenous wisdom, seeds, animals and plants and pesticides and factory farming.

A major grassroots mobilization and convergence is planned in Sacramento
from June 20-25. This is an opportunity for people to say no to a genetically engineered future, and to voice instead a living world vision rooted in social justice and ecological sanity. It is also a chance to stand in solidarity with the people's movements and hundreds of peasant farmers groups from around the world that have called on social movements in the US to denounce and protest this meeting.

So, come to Sacramento! Join us for a festival of diverse resistance to
bioimperialism, the Bush Administration and 'free trade'. There will be
non-violent direct actions, marches, a rally, a teach-in, street theatre
music and more to confront the war on the earth and its people.
