The Masters of Free Trade are coming to Houston from Oct 20-24 and we are going to be there to stop them. Come join thousands in the grassroots effort to retake our democracy and tell Bush, Zoellick and their corporate pals that our Planet is not for sale.

When:Monday, October 20th Rally begins at 4 pm, March Begins at 5 pm
Where: Rally at Grady Park (1700 Yorktown), March to the Westin Galleria (5060 Alabama)

Masses of people are rising up against the neo-liberal polices of the World Trade Organization, The Free Trade Area of Americas and goverments supporting Central American Free Trade. In Cancun, Managua and all over Latin America thousands are speaking truth to power and challenging corporate globalization. Now it is time to tell the power-brokers meeting in George W. Bush's hometown that our world is not for sale and we will use whatever non-violent and intellectual means available to challenge the destructive neo-liberal policies that undermine worker's rights and well-being, the environment, health and safety standards and the fabric of our democracy.
