      Dear Donna and Border Activists,

      Per the announcement below, we are having FTAA/Gap actions in Tucson on Nov
      12 and El Paso on the Nov 13 as part of our cross-country roadshow to stop
      the FTAA in Miami. We will be covering local related issues at these
      actions, such as the prison privatization issue at the University of Arizona
      and the Juarez murders. The El Paso announcement will follow in Spanish.
      Please distribute far and wide! Many Thanks! --Mary, The Gapatista Road Show

      The Gapatistas Ride Again!

      Join Us on Our Cross-country Road Show

      to Stop the FTAA in Miami, Nov 10--17!

      ***We'd Rather Wear Nothing Than Wear Gap!!!***

      The GAPATISTAS will be staging actions in seven cities-L.A., Tucson, El
      Paso, Austin, New Orleans, Tallahassee, & Miami Beach (see below for dates,
      times, locations)-en route to the mass protests against the FREE TRADE AREA
      OF THE AMERICAS (FTAA) in Miami, Nov 17--21, where up to 100,000 protestors
      are expected to converge!!! Our FTAA/Gap action in each city will start with
      a march including a 200-year-old giant redwood stump-logged by the Fishers
      of the Gap-to the entrance of the Gap store or mall. A mini FTAA & LOCAL
      ISSUES TEACH-IN will ensue using the stump as a stage. Speakers will
      alternate with GREAT SONGS and RADICAL CHEERS, all building to the CLIMACTIC
      round off the action with leafleting and one-on-one. Come strip with us for
      Redwoods & Workers Rights, for Global Justice and Global Ecology!!! Bring
      drums, noise-makers, and outlandish underwear!!!

      WHY THE GAP? Gap Inc is a poster-corporation of transnational exploitation
      and the debacle of corporate economic globalization. From the Devastation of
      the Aral Sea to the Ruination of the Redwoods! From the exploitation of
      cotton-workers in Uzbekistan to needle-workers in sweatshops throughout the
      global south! From union-busting in maquiladoras to union-busting on US
      docks. Whether it's advising the President on lethal global trade policies,
      coercing the City of San Francisco to slash business taxes by 5/6ths, or
      engaging in sweetheart deals to the tune of $18 million in public subsidies!
      Whether blocking a living wage for city workers or privatizing national
      parks, public schools, and public television-THE GAP IS THERE!!!

      To speak at any of these events or for more information, please contact
      415-731-7924 (office) or 415-509-1188 (cell Nov 10-26) or email
