alt-WTO is a mini-conference Wellington
alt-WTO is a mini-conference to introduce the issues surrounding the WTO, and encourage discussion of resistance and alternatives to WTO, 'trade liberalisation', and the neo-liberal agenda.
This is one of a stream of events around this country and the world that are debating and challenging the WTO.
The gathering is a chance to hear some great speakers, and debate the issues, and have time to chat with others in a safe environment.
The conference is sponsored by the Wellington Alliance Branch, and organised by members of the Wellington Left
