Our World is Not For Sale (OWINFS) (...)

“Our World Is Not for Sale” is a worldwide network of organizations; activists and social movements committed to challenging trade and investment agreements that advance the interests of the world’s most powerful corporations at the expense of people and the environment, and to a sustainable, socially just, democratic and accountable multilateral trading system.
OWINFS grew out of the international campaigns against the Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAI) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). Linkages are also made between all the various pieces of the corporate-driven trade agenda, from the WTO to regional and bilateral agreements. OWINFS members are all part of national and regional campaigns fighting unfair trade agreements, including the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the Plan Puebla Panama (PPP).
Their efforts include convening regular international conference calls, meetings and e-mail discussions that provide movement leaders with the opportunity to share and develop ideas and strategy, organizing delegations of social movement actors to Geneva, Switzerland where the WTO is headquartered, to lobby negotiators and to provide them with critical analysis of the impacts of existing and proposed WTO policy, and organizing international press conferences, days of action and demonstrations in order to pressure government leaders and trade negotiators to roll-back harmful trade policy provisions, and to cease to craft more agreements that undermine the public interest.


Seattle to Brussels Network (S2B)

S2B was formed in 1999 and is a pan-European network which campaigns to promote a sustainable, socially and democratically accountable system of trade, particularly within the EU. The network is involved in coordinating events such as The General Council of People at Geneva in October 2005.
