Make Trade Fair Global Week of Action
Geneva, Switzerland, April 11, 2005
Colin Firth met with World Trade
Organization (WTO) Director-General Supachai Panitchpakdi at WTO
headquarters in Geneva to discuss Oxfam's report "Kicking Down
the Door," which exposes how rich countries are forcing poor ones to
open their markets and dumping surplus crops, undermining the
livelihood of farmers in poorer nations. In addition, Firth presented
Oxfam's Big Noise petition of over 7 million names to make trade fair.
This campaign represents the voices of people
around the world who are calling on world leacers to change the rules
of international trade.
