The Common Front on the World Trade Organization (CFWTO) is launching the Quebec to Qatar cross-country caravans on October 18 from St. Johns and Victoria.
The caravans will criss-cross the country until November 15 supporting local struggles and starting a discussion on what a better world looks like and how we can take steps toward it through fair trade.
Public meetings and other events are planned to shine a light on the push by the World Trade Organization to begin a new round of trade talks aimed at turning public services into market goods.
Educational materials including handbooks, videos, lobby tools and corporate player cards will accompany the caravan, as well as amazing people working in different countries and social sectors, ready to share their experience of the WTO agenda.
