The International of capital is triumphing. But that of human beings
yet to be born.

A little more each day the market is taking control over life. It
organises work, determines salaries, relocates factories, decides what
drink, what we breathe, what we eat. It whittles down social progress,
eliminates differences, destroys public services, wipes out democracy
the peoples' right to self-determination.

A little more each day globalisation is accelerating, without a single
democratically designated institution having chosen this to be. The
Trade Organisation's next round of negotiations runs the danger of
provoking a further breathtaking acceleration of this process.

If its schedule is maintained, soon almost nothing will remain of all
has been achieved through centuries of social and political struggles.

In the name of freedom of trade, they will have annihilated Freedom
itself. And yet, if directed in accordance with sovereign rights, the
environment and social achievements, controlled by democratic
the internationalisation of economies, cultures, ideas and peoples would

enrich humanity considerably.

We who sign this appeal propose to all the peoples of the world that
join together to demand and impose the following three decisions from
their respective Governments:

1.  A complete audit of all the consequences of globalisation, in
particular concerning the WTO's compliance with the Universal
of Human Rights and all other international conventions.

2.  The organisation world-wide of general assemblies for democratic
debate among citizens, workers, firms, trade unions, associations, NGOs,

elected representatives and all those whose lives are in some way
by further reducing restrictions on trade.

3.  A moratorium, already requested by thousands of organisations around

the world, on all new free-trade agreements, and in particular the
postponement of the next round of WTO negotiations until the audit has
been completed and the States General held.
