>A CALL TO ACTION NOVEMBER 4, 1999

>SUPPORT THE ZAPATISTA COMMUNITIES IN RESISTANCE
>OPPOSE THE EXPANSION OF NAFTA

>>In light of intensifying militarization in Chiapas, ACERCA, with the
>>support of the Mexico Solidarity Network, is calling for an International
>>Day of Action in support of the Zapatista communities in resistance on
>>November 4, 1999.
>>
>>Why November 4?  On November 4, 1999, trade ministers from 34 countries
>>will meet in Toronto, Canada, to continue negotiations for the expansion of
>>NAFTA into all of the countries of the Americas, with the exception of
>>Cuba.  This new trade agreement under negotiation is called the Free Trade
>>Area of the Americas (FTAA).  We all know from our experience with NAFTA
>>that if we allow this neoliberal trade agreement trade agreement to pass,
>>the effects on indigenous people, workers, ecology, culture and local
>>economic and political self-determination will be devastating.
>>
>>In light of the recent escalation of military and paramilitary pressure in
>>Chiapas, it is important that solidarity groups in the U.S. again make our
>>support and resistance visible in the media and before the North American
>>public.  And strategically, just as the Zapatistas rose up on the day NAFTA
>>was implemented, it is appropriate to organize a Day of Action on the day
>>trade ministers are negotiating NAFTA expansion.
>>
>>The ACERCA working group will be in Toronto from October 31-November 5,
>>working with Canadian groups Metro Network for Social Justice and Common
>>Frontiers to organize demonstrations and forums of civil society in
>>opposition to the negotiations.
>>
>>ACERCA invites all Zapatista supporters and opponents of "free trade" to
>>join us in Toronto, or organize a demonstration in your community on
>>November 4, International Day of Action and Resistance in solidarity
>>with the Zapatista movement and all of the indigenous people of Mexico.
>>
>>PLEASE JOIN US.  COME TO TORONTO, OR ORGANZE
> AN EVENT IN YOUR OWN COMMUNITY
>>ON NOVEMBER 4, 1999.
