About Us

  • Eyes on Trade is a blog by the staff of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch (GTW) division. GTW aims to promote democracy by challenging corporate globalization, arguing that the current globalization model is neither a random inevitability nor "free trade." Eyes on Trade is a space for interested parties to share information about globalization and trade issues, and in particular for us to share our watchdogging insights with you! GTW director Lori Wallach's initial post explains it all.

"Nine weeks. Six to eight hours a day in a bicycle seat..."

"... And who knows how many lessons to be learned in conversation over coffee. Or, herbal tea. Organic, fair trade, sustainably harvested, cruelty-free herbal tea." Elizabeth Wynne Johnson on WAMU's Power Breakfast  One-james-bicycle-revolution

Yesterday, Global Trade Watch's Senior Field Organizer James Ploeser departed from West Virginia on a 2000+ mile journey by bicycle to the UN Climate Summit in Cancun, Mexico. With freelance organizer friend Jamie Trowbridge, Ploeser's mission is to connect the issue of climate change to economic globalization in order to "weave together a broader story about what it's going to take to really solve the greatest challenge of our generation."
