Guatemalan Activist Norma Maldonado in London on 10th April

I just wanted to flag up the following event where Guatemalan human rights defender, Norma Maldonado, will be speaking 10 April 2008, from 7-9pm. Norma has worked for many years promoting women’s rights, respect for the environment and trade justice through the Mesa Global de Guatemala amongst many other areas of work. You can see a short presentation by Norma at an event at Harvard University in 2000 (starts 37mins in).

Join key campaigners from Africa, Asia and Latin America to hear about the growing resistance to Europe’s plans and how we can link up globally to stop these unjust deals and put in place a new trade system which protects both people and the environment.
