Dear Fair Trade Supporter,
Last week we told you about our new WTO Turnaround campaign celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Seattle WTO protests and calling on President Obama to replace the failed rules of our global economy.
Now, as a fun way to celebrate that historic event, we're organizing house parties across the country. Sign up to organize one - with at least 10 of your friends or family or for a larger school, union, church, or synagogue group - and we'll send you a free copy of the film Battle in Seattle starring Charlize Theron, Andre 3000, Woody Harrelson and more. The movie comes with a terrific action kit – so all you need to do is invite your friends.
Host a house party screening with your friends and neighbors.
As part of the action kit, we'll send you a bonus special edition DVD with exciting Seattle protest footage and a short new documentary to play before the movie to update your guests on the WTO and the WTO turnaround fight growing worldwide. The kit also includes postcards so that your friends and neighbors can remind President Obama about his trade reform commitments and the incredible activist victory that happened in Seattle 10 years ago.
Get your special edition copy of Battle in Seattle with the amazing new second disc of historic footage, interviews and new features.
This special edition DVD, which we helped the Steelworkers produce, will inspire and mobilize your friends and neighbors. And we're going to need them: trade ministers from across the globe meet in Geneva, Switzerland on November 30, 2009 - the exact 10-year anniversary of the Seattle protests - seeking to expand the WTO's destructive corporate agenda.
By organizing house parties and mobilizing our friends and neighbors, we can make sure President Obama calls for a WTO Turnaround plan.
Ten years after Seattle, it's time to turn around the WTO. Organize a house party screening to help make sure this happens!
Thanks for all that you do,
Deputy Director, Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch division
