Impact of global free trade on the world’s poor and the protests in Manila against the APEC summit with Walden Bellow, of the Manila people’s forum on APEC.

The emphasis of the Manila People’s forum is on equitable and sustainable development and fair trade that is beneficial to the masses and not just the transnational corporations and it opposes what it sees as the APEC’s indiscriminate trade liberalization in the Asia-Pacific region.

Mr. Bellow argues that APEC is more of a weapon used by the US to push its trade objectives, reduce its huge trade deficits with Asian countries and that the huge masses of the people in the Asia pacific region are negatively affected by APEC’s policies.
