Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate right now and help us unlock a special $25,000 gift? If 200 people donate to Democracy Now! today, a generous donor will contribute $25,000 in support of our independent journalism. Every donation counts, so please do your part. Thank you!
-Amy Goodman

Anti-Globalization Activists Plan WTO Protest in Qatar

HeadlineSep 11, 2001

Anti-globalization activists are planning for protesters to land at Qatar in a flotilla during the World Trade Organization meetings in an effort to halt the launch of a new trade round. In what’s shaping up as one of the most ambitious anti-globalization protests to date, organizers are also preparing for demonstrations against stock exchanges and multinational corporations as part of a global day of action on November 9. This weekend, protest organizers are flying into London from San Francisco, Washington, D.C,. Southern India, and Honduras, to put together funding arrangements and logistical plans for the small convoy of ships, which will head for Qatar.
