13-12-2005 20:46INCA Foundation(in Timisoara) got a place from the city for a period of 5 years to develop a community center inside a historical part of the city (part of the defense wall of the old fortress of the city). Now after 3 and a half years inspectors came keen on finding stuff that is breaking the contract so that they have a motivation to throw us in the streets. Our strong conviction is that this was a deliberate act, and inspectors which came were not interested to find solutions to fix the problems they discovered, they were not interested in finding out if there is another side of the story and so on. They were sent to find a reason to throw us out.
So carry on Christmas shopping.

" It is not and has never been an institution that had the betterment of the working peoples' welfare as its agenda..." WTO disputed in Philippine Congress. (Dec 6)
Resist! Spokesperson and Bayan Muna Representative Teddy Casino today questioned in Congress the Philippines' continuing membership in the the World Trade Organization (WTO).
