Sale of the Century

Beverley Duckworth, Head of Campaigns for the World Development Movement (WDM), a pressure group campaigning for the rights of developing countries, exposes how basic services in poor countries are under threat from western governments and big business. She explains how, through the WTO, rich countries are aggressively pushing binding rules which pose a real and serious threat to people’s access to basic services, the world over, under an international treaty called the General Agreement in Trades and Services (GATS). She also explains what we can do to halt the process.
