Stay in Boston for FTAA Protests! (english)
21 Oct 2003
Stay in Boston rather than going to Miami. It is far more important that we demonstrate all over the country, nay, all over the world in opposition to the FTAA rather than all congregating in one area.
The national media continually marginalizes protests, most effectively by not reporting on them. It is far more difficult for local media to ignore large protests in their own cities. We need to take the FTAA demonstrations to every city in the nation rather than to the one city where the meetings are being held. The ministries will not be bothered by 70000 protestors in Miami, and no one will be educated by it, but if we manage thousands of people in each major city in Amerika, we can enlighten a countless number of individuals who currently have no idea that there is such a thing as the FTAA.

So, stay in boston, demonstrate on Nov. 22 with the Boston Global Action Network.
