A painting for the 1997 UnFree Trade Tour of North America. Three anti-globalization activists with
from Europe toured to 60 cities
with two Food Not Bombs activists from the United States. ( The fourth person could not participate )
The tour described the crisis that would result from trade agreements
by institutions like the World Trade Organization (WTO)
like the Maastricht Treaty and the North American Free Trade Agreement.
The film Fifty Years is Enough was shown and each presentation
ended with a discussion about organizing a blockade of any WTO summits that may be held in North America.
A year after the tour the WTO
announced they would hold their first U.S. summit in Seattle in November 1999.
People that signed the contact sheet during the tour were
encouraged to travel to Seattle to join in the blockade.
Today we can see how devastating the Maastricht Treaty and other agreements
have been to the economy, rights and environment of Europe just as described during the tour.
