The solidarity protest announced in this poster was held in Richmond, California, to coincide with the 5th WTO Conference in Cancun, Mexico, starting the next day. During the WTO's opening day, a South Korean farmer, Kun Hai Lee, committed ritual suicide to protest the organization's agricultural policies. Witnesses said Lee stood in front of police lines, declared that "the WTO kills farmers," and then slashed himself to death with a blade. His suicide came on South Korea's Day of the Dead.
