Ten years of WTO, a decade of plunder and war

UPDATE: “Trade” in the era of imperialism means inter-imperialist rivalry and collaboration in plundering the weak economies; and war is the sharpest form and expression of these inter-imperialist competition, aggression and domination of the weaker states.

This was the strong message in the Forum on Trade and War organized by the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS) in the Victoria Park. The ASA delegation presented in the forum and participated in the exchanged with the prominent speakers from different part of the world including Prof. Jose Maria Sison, Jane Kelsey, Tony Tujan etc.

It was an inspiring and critical forum. Besides the progressive and critical analysis about the current international affairs, the future prospect of the people’s movement also made up an important element in the forum. The ASA delegation stayed in the forum from the morning until the evening with full attention and actively participation. It showed the power and the energetic of the youth and students!
