CUPE is co-sponsoring the caravan along with CUPW, the Canadian Federation of Students, the Sierra Club and other groups. It will stop in 21 cities and five provinces, raising public awareness and concern about the upcoming negotiations at the WTO and the threat they represent to public services. The WTO is pushing for, among other things, a “global free trade zone”.
Well include an itinerary for the caravan in the next issue of FASTFACTS. For more information in the interim, check wtocaravan.org
