The MC6 Conference has come onto the 5th day. Because of the police
interruption and provocation—not allowing people to march on the original
route—therefore, large scale conflict has occurred. WTO has destroyed
workers’ and peasants’ livelihoods all around the world. So the
protesters fight against the police. The justice is on the people’s side!
Anyone who supports the suppression of the people is on the side of the
exploiters. What’s most shameful is that the police have shot tear gas
many times to the crowd without any previous warning. Many journalists and
observing citizens have become the victims. Moreover, the police used to
announce that they won't use the water cannons, but in this afternoon, they
use the water cannons to attack the protesters. All of the above has shown
that the police have violently abuse human rights.
The WTO has brought huge disasters to workers and environment since it
established ten years ago. The rich countries, authoritarian governments,
and multinational corporations which dominate the WTO, put profits before
people’s needs for the interests of politicians and big corporations. The
peasants have been bankrupted, the workers lost their jobs, and the
environment polluted. We’ve had enough!
Human beings are not slaves of governments and capitalists. Fighting
against injustice is the sacred right of the people. Therefore, we call for
the people of Hong Kong to understand and support this just struggle! Say
no to the WTO, which is destroying people’s lives! Say no to the HK
government’s suppression on the people! Immediately release all the
