Stop Expansion of the WTO and Shut Down the Corporate “Trade” Attack: Food, Jobs, Peoples’ Rights and Sustainable Development First!

For twenty years, people and the environment have suffered enormously from a powerful assault on our basic needs and rights via free trade agreements.  The World Trade Organization (WTO) and numerous Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) have been used by large corporations to impose policies that destroy jobs and livelihoods, undermine access to affordable medicine and essential services, trash the environment and impose numerous policies that undermine our future. Before the WTO and the FTAs, there was one agreement that set the rules for trade in goods called the GATT (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade). The WTO replaced GATT, imposing over governments’ own policies a corporate wish list of damaging intellectual property, investment and agricultural rules and constraints on the health, financial, food safety, environmental and other regulations on which we all rely. The WTO includes an enforcement system that has the power to penalize countries, taking away the policy space of governments and forcing them to change their national policies affecting access to medicines, food andwater; economic development; control over natural resources; financial stability; energy; and more. This unprecedented attack on national sovereignty and the public interest is being sold as “free trade.” 

In 1995, at its birth, the WTO rules covered 112 countries. Now 159 countries are bound to the WTO’s damaging rules. One of the main goals of the large developed countries and global corporations who hatched the WTO is to further expand those rules, which would intensify the WTO’s attack on our basic rights and needs. This is an agenda that they have been trying unsuccessfully to impose through the so-called Doha “Development” Round. From the streets of Seattle, massive protests in Cancun (2003) and Hong Kong (2005), and through years of relentless campaigning in many countries, against the Doha Round’s attack on jobs, food security and more, until todaypeoples power has prevented the conclusion of the Doha Round and stopped the WTO’s expansion. Global campaigning also derailed the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (FTAA), one of numerous FTAs that transnational corporationshave used to push their corporate trade agenda beyond the WTO. Before the Doha Round, civil society stopped the Multilateral Agreement on Investment, which would have resulted in many of the same devastating impacts. Ensuring that the Doha Round is not revived is critical to safeguard these past victories and to fight back against the renewed onslaught of corporate globalization,which is also represented by the new wave of bilateral and regional FTAs all over the world, such as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the EU-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA), Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs), and others).

After many failed WTO Ministerial meetings and nearly twelve years of negotiations on this dangerous WTO expansion, the future of the WTO will be decided at the December 3-6 Bali WTO Ministerial meeting. Only by taking action in each of our countries to hold our governments accountable and by showing our power in Bali, can we stop WTO expansion and begin to dismantle the catastrophic regime of “free trade” agreements.

Stop the new attempt to expand the WTO in Bali

At the 9th Ministerial of the WTO in Bali, transnational corporations want to reverse our victory of stopping theDoha Roundexpansion for all of these years. Their plan is to push countries to agree to a number of specific issues and then open the door for negotiations on other issues that will expand the WTO’s power and dangerous rules.

What is this plan that we must stop? Developed countries have broken their Doha Round pledge to negotiate on key developing country issues and have removed from the agenda the “development mandate” issues intended to correct the severe problems in existing WTO rules. This includes opposing: a proposal by the G33, a group of 46 developing countries, to allow developing countries to subsidize poor farmers to grow food for their populations at risk of hunger; a simple package of policies to allow least developing countries to improve the results of their participation in global trade; and a proposal to provide “special and differential treatment” to developing countries recognizing that they cannot succeed under the same rules as the rich developed countries.

Instead, the developed countries have re-packaged the same liberalization and market access demands by their corporations on developing countries that have been rejected repeatedlyby the developing country WTO members. This includes an agreement on Trade Facilitation, which would require developing countries to prioritize their financial and technological resources on facilitating more imports from developed countries. Not only would this mean fewer resources for national health, education and employment goals, but it would undermine the economies of developing countries with a new flood of imports.

Developed countries have also trashed the WTO’s own fundamental principles that require all countries to agree to new negotiations, and have launched negotiations on their post-Bali corporate agenda. This includes expansion of an existing WTO plurilateral Information Technology Agreement (ITA). Expanding the ITA would restrict the ability of poor countries to develop key job-creation industries. And, effectively, it would provide a stealthy new path for transnational corporations and developed countries to force the liberalization that developing countries rejected in the Doha Round’s “Non-Agricultural Market Access” negotiations. They have also launched plurilateral negotiations on a radical services FTA called the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) that would result in the deregulation and liberalization of many private-sector and public services in developing and developed countries alike. This agreement would also reduce pressure on developed countries to concede to changes to existing WTO rules demanded by developing countries. These two agreements represent more of the failed model of liberalization and deregulation, which civil society organizations in both, developed and developing countrieshave long opposed.

This 9thWTO Ministerial meeting will have one major difference from previous Ministerial meetings:Brazil will be at the helm. The BRICS countries supported a Brazilian to become the WTO’s new Director General, and although Brazil has played a key role in countering the demands of the developed country bloc, they will likely push for an outcome that would lead to the expansion of the WTO.The trade ministers of the BRICS stated that “the WTO requires a new leader [from a developing country]… that will lead to an expeditious conclusion of the Doha Development Agenda”, while at the same time they “indicated a willingness to explore outcomes in specific areas where progress is possible” and “addresses key developmental concerns of the poorest and most vulnerable WTO members”. This new dynamic requires special vigilance to ensure that the outcome of the 9th Ministerial is not “more-of-the-same” corporate wish lists, the adoption of costly measures for developing countries throughTrade Facilitation and a post-Bali agenda to further advance free trade liberalization at a multilateral level disguised with a few token pledges for developing countries.

Build people power to end the “free trade” regime before, during and after Bali

Trade is needed but a different kind of trade, one that is not based on the exploitation of people and nature and whose rules benefit communities and notcorporations. The global financial, food, economic, and other crises – which the FTA and WTO privatization and liberalization rules contributed to – prove why this is critical to our futures.  The kind of trade we need is complementary trade not corporate trade. The WTO, FTAs and BITs are not written in stone. They can be ended and replaced with other trade agreements. This is the case of the Mexico-Bolivia FTA that was replaced by an agreement only on goods, or the dozens of BITs that have been denounced and are being re-negotiated without the investor-to-state settlement dispute clause. We need a very different kind of trade framework, one that guarantees human rights above corporate interests; one that preserves the sovereignty of the states, especially of the weakest; one that defends at the forefront, health, food, jobs and one that treats nature with respect and care. A world without the WTO, FTAs, BITs and the free trade regime is possible and necessary!

Our call is to stop the expansion of the WTO in Bali, and strengthen the global movement to put an end to this free trade regime.Any agreement coming out of the Bali Ministerial Meeting must put an end to the devastation of decades of corporate-led globalization policies. We must ensure that the Bali WTO Ministerial meeting does not approve a dangerous expansion of the corporate agenda. Instead, anew equitable and complementary trade framework must be developed that has peoples and nature’s rights at its heart. We demand: 

·         No WTO Expansion! In the lead up to the BaliWTO Ministerial, governments must reject aTrade Facilitationagreementand insist on an end to negotiations theother agreements that expand WTO policies, such as the proposed ITA and TISA.  

·       WTO Turnaround! Instead, governments must agree to begin to dismantle the overreaching WTO rules to ensure the required policy space for countries to address key issues such as food, health, jobs, financial stability, climate change and nature. This alternative agenda is identified in the WTO Turnaround 2013: Food, Jobs and Development First! Statement. And, governments must approve the proposal of developing countries on Food Security, and a strong package of proposals for Least Developed Countries which have been long identified as the priority by developing countries; and other key policy changes identified in the WTO Turnaround 2013: Food, Jobs and Development First! Statement. 

·         Change the Global Trade System! The global trade framework must work for the 99%. Failed institutions like the WTO, and FTAs and BITs, must be replaced with a new system that disciplines corporations, while providing countries sufficient policy space to pursue a positive agenda for sustainable development and job-creation, food security, access to affordable healthcare and medicines, and global financial stability. 

It is essential that we organize throughout 2013 to move beyond slogans and declarations, and mobilize by directly pressuring governments to take decisive action this year. OWINFS encourages civil society organizations concerned about the impacts of the WTO on workers, farmers, women, the environment, and our future, to organize pressure immediately on your Trade Minister and other national officials in order to achieve the above goals: 

  1. Endorse the WTO Turnaround 2013: Food, Jobs and Sustainable Development First – Statement developed by the OWINFS network, which can then be used to:
  2. Organize educational events to raise public awareness of the negative domestic impacts of the WTO – and the potentially worse impact of current corporate proposals for WTO expansion in the Bali package – on farmers, workers, the environment, and other key affected communities in your country.
  3. Demand a meeting (together with other concerned groups) with your Trade Minister, to express your demands regarding the Bali package, the existing WTO, and the need for transformation of the global trade regime – and let your government know that you are monitoring their activities in Geneva and Bali!
  4. Ask Parliamentarians and other affected Ministries (Agriculture, Health, Labor, Central Bank and financial regulators, etc.) to put pressure on your Trade Minister and Head of State to advocate for people’s interests and needs in the current negotiations in Geneva on the Bali package, and the WTO generally.
  5. Send a national letter, endorsed by a wide variety of social movements, unions and civil society organizations, to your government that reiterate the demands of the global campaign on WTO.
  6. Develop different kind of initiatives, parliamentarian petitions, sign-on letters, press conferences, mobilizations and creative actions to say enough is enough and that we have had 18 years too much of trade liberalization. 
  1. Contact the media and tell them about the negative impacts on the economy, workers, farmers, consumers, fisherfolk, women, climate change, and the environment of the WTO. You can submit a Letter to the Editor or an OpEd. OWINFS has available Talking Points and a comprehensive Editorial Board Memo that you can use as a resource, to develop one that is appropriate to your national media.
  2. Coordinate joint actions in all countries during the 9th Ministerial to give a big blow to the WTO, the FTAs and BITs. 
  1. Come to Bali during the Ministerial! Participate with OWINFS in organizing pressure on your representatives during the negotiations at the Ministerial, supporting the Indonesian social movements in mass mobilizations.
