Thank you, Lori Wallach, for a great summation of the "battle after Seattle".

Most people do not understand the extent that the WTO diminishes our control, as citizens, over national, even state and local issues. If people understood the vast usurpation of their prerogatives, laws and rights that have been placed in an unelected, unaccountable foreign institution, they would be outraged.

As you say, there are more battles to fight to wrest control of basic sovereign determinations and rights that have been usurped by the constitutionally illegal WTO. Our future depends on the dismantling of this extralegal institution that supports the disenfranchisement, exploitation and subjugation of all people to the advantage of über-wealthy corporations and individuals.

Once again, thanks Lori Wallach.
