Call of grassroots communities on WTO

On December 6, 2013, eleven farmer alliances, fisher folk associations, worker unions, women groups and social movement representatives from Indonesia, Philippines and Bangladesh gathered together in Bali to share their experiences and devise future strategies and actions for reclaiming resource & people’s rights. Timed just before the closing of WTO MC, the APFNSorganized forum sought to highlight the various problems brought about by unjust WTO trade agreements which have imperiled local economies and pushed more communities into deeper poverty.
The WTO ministerial conference has no contribution on local livelihood; rather its free trade agendas are damaging local livelihoods. Farmers, fisher folk, workers & women are calling for an end of the WTO and its linked trade agreements, which has pushed people into deeper poverty and imperiled local economies.

The event organized by:

  • Coastal Development Partnership-Bangladesh
  • Indonesia for Global Justice (IGJ)
  • Pambansang Kaisahan ng Magbubukid sa Pilipinas (PKMP)
  • Integrated Rural Development Foundation IRDF)-Philippines
