Attendees at the Peoples' Summit wrote a Unity Statement - emphasizing the impact of Free Trade agreements on workers, migrants, women and the planet!

"We, the attendees of the Seattle anti-APEC Peoples’ Summit, declare that people’s needs and all-around sustaining of the environment take precedence over corporate profit! This Summit was a showcase for possible alternatives to the free trade system that informs APEC, IPEF and all other profit-oriented institutions. We are building a grassroots people power that will challenge business-as-usual for big business!"
