There is Something New in the WTO wind.
We at 'Stop WTORound' are talking over what to
do about an Online Forum invite issued by the
So far every Yay, Nay has it's valid points.
Bottom line..we dont trust the b*stards.
Yet.. If we don't take this "dubious" opportunity
to speak 'with' them..
we will never know if we Might have had any
One thing I believe is: If we don't at least give
it a try, they can & WILL say we were
(As THEY most likey will be if we DO try this..)
Sitting in on Boardroom discussions are a waste
of valuable time, trying to shout em down to get
a point heard is counterproductive.
An online forum?....worth Deep consideration.
OUR Home Turf for many of us.
I Would Rather Set Myself On Fire
than to play into their hands or,
as some surmise we might be,
held up & touted as "cooperating" with them.

I do wish the N30-2000. protest would be as big
(or bigger) than the last one!
(That would lend powerful punch to our crusade.)
It would surely send the message to ALL
governments WW , (& the sleeping public )
Clearer & louder than last year.
Ah well. We can hope.
(Notice,jjf? I'm trying REALLY hard! ;)
it IS a lousy habit...& I'm going to break it.
It's been my thang for a looong time. =)
