APEC Alert was a grassroots group formed at the University of British Columbia of students, former students, faculty, staff and others who were opposed to APEC (the Asia Pacific Economic Summit) on the UBC campus and to the entire APEC agenda. They formed in January 1997 after outgoing UBC President, David Strangaway, announced his unilateral decision to host the APEC leaders summit on campus in November of the same year. Their mandate, in conjunction with other similar anti-APEC groups, was to raising awareness of APEC among students, staff and faculty, advocating political action against APEC and actively and creatively resisting APEC with a diverse range of activities. APEC Alert was created in the belief that the APEC summit held on campus November 24th and 25th was held not to foster free trade, but to impose changes to benefit corporations at the expense of people, governments and the environment. APEC Alert considered APEC to be undemocratic, complicit in the erosion of human rights, promoters of environmental destruction, and fostering a society of consumption. APEC Alert does not exist formally at this time, but their website is maintained and new documents added to their on-line document archive.
