Reclaiming APEC Conference Next Month

Media Release:
6th August 1999
For Immediate Release

The "Reclaiming APEC" conference is to begin in Auckland a month tomorrow and immediately before the APEC meeting of Heads of State.

"APEC is little more than a corporate scam. Instead of achieving its vision of stability, security & prosperity for the people of its member nations, APEC has focussed on establishing a free market that benefits multi-national interests at the expense of the people and the environment" said Bruce Dyer, the conference organiser.

"The conference comes from the same stable as last October's "Beyond Capitalism" seminar and will both challenge APEC's misguided direction and develop positive and holistic models for future development."

The 3-day conference is to be held at Auckland University from 7th - 9th September.

The Conference's website includes details of the organisations promoting the conference, profiles of the speakers and registration information.
