Invitation to the People’s Global Camp in Bali, Indonesia

PGC posterTo: Civil Society Organization and Social Movement

Dear Friends,

Indonesia takes center stage as it hosts of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Ministerial Meeting on 3-6 December 2013. This forum is being convened in the midst of the global economic, financial, climate, energy, food and political crises confronting the world today. But the WTO will not deliver real solutions that will steer the world and the people out of the multiple crises. Instead of offering real solutions, the WTO pushes for more of the same recipe that have brought upon the multiple crises – more liberalization, deregulation and privatization – which will result in greater impacts to the peoples and planet.

The Indonesian Peoples’ Alliance (IPA) invites mass organizations, civil society organizations and social movements in Indonesia and other global regions, to come to Bali and organize a broad platform of campaign against the 9th WTO Ministerial Meeting and this renewed neoliberal offensive. The IPA will organize the People’s Global Camp (PGC) on 3-6 December 2013 in Bali, Indonesia.

The PGC is a venue for collective learning, analysis and action against neoliberal policies and the WTO. Unlike the exclusive, undemocratic WTO, the PGC is a hub wherein various organizations can conduct their self-organized activities and feed in into the plenary sessions where common goals and aspirations on alternatives to the current failed development model will be integrated.

The Indonesian Peoples’ Alliance (IPA) is calling on local and international people’s movements, trade unions, grassroots organizations and NGOs to unite against the renewal of the neoliberal agenda at the WTO Ministerial on 3-6 December in Bali, Indonesia. The IPA invites these groups to come at the People’s Global Camp that will be organized as an alternative gathering in Bali that will run in parallel to the WTO Ministerial. People’s Global Camp will be held in Gelora Ngurah Rai, Jalan Melati, Denpasar, Bali, 3-6 December 2013. (Click here to download the detailed program)
