Subject:        Twelfth Night in Minneapolis

Minneapolis is about to become a Shakespearean hotbed over the next few
months.  For anyone in the vicinity or travelling through, here's the
information:

Currently at Theatre de la Jeune Lune, a wonderfully irridescent
production of _Twelfth Night_ (for which I had the pleasure of doing
some research, as well as writing some material for the accompanying
study guide); it plays through March 22.

Opening March 20 and playing through April 10: _The Merry Wives of
Windsor_ at Theatre in the Round Players, one of the exceptionally fine
local community theaters.

Opening in April at the Guthrie: _Much Ado About Nothing_.

Opening in May: the Mary Worth Theatre Company (a newer local company)
production of _Titus Andronicus_ (I'm assisting with the dramaturgical
work on this one).

Please contact me directly if you'd like additional information.

Chris Gordon

While the U.S. and world media have been gorging on the Lewinsky affair,
29 of the world's most developed nations have been drafting something
called the Multilateral Agreement on Investment.  The treaty would bar
Congress, state legislatures, and local governments from using trade
sanctions to push labor, environmental, or human rights standards.  It
would end "enterprise zones" or "Buy American" efforts to improve the
lot of American workers.

Multinational corporations, predictably, are in favor of the treaty.
Opponents include small business, AFL-CIO and other labor unions, state
governments, environmentalists, and consumer groups.  Opponents call it
"NAFTA on steroids."  Multinationals see it as a way to keep all
governments, from Federal on down, from interfering with profits by
means of boycotts or regulations, for example, that would provide labor
laws, human rights, or environmental standards.

The treaty is scheduled to be signed into final form in April and then
to come before the U.S. Senate for ratification as a treaty (meaning it
overrules all domestic laws in the U.S.).  I have seen virtually no
press coverage of this Trojan horse except for an article in the current
(February 9) _Business Week_.  The text of the treaty has been posted,
however, by Public Citizen Global Trade Watch at
http://www.citizen.org/pctrade/tradehome.html .  The site also tells you
how to contact the State Department's negotiators.  I encourage you to
take a look and write them and your senator accordingly.

I am posting this, because I believe MIA poses a devastating threat to
any kind of progress in saving the environment, human rights, or simply
human welfare from the insatiable we-want-it-all greed of the
multinationals.  I yrge you to take a look and write your legislator
about your views.

Yours, Norm Holland
