Free-Trade Failures from Canada to Colombia: Stop SPP and the Colombia FTA

Learn about the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, a “super-NAFTA” package of trade and security initiatives organized behind closed doors between corporate leadership and the Mexican, Canadian, and US governments, and the Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement (Colombia FTA), a “free-trade” deal built on a history of neoliberal repression of workers rights.

Find out how you can stop these undemocratic pro-corporate giveaways, and protect the rights of people, communities, and ecosystems threatened by “free trade.”

Speakers include:

  • Carleen Picard of the Council of Canadians
  • Hector Sánchez, policy education coordinator for Global Exchange’s Mexico Program
  • Manuel Pérez Rocha of the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington
  • Author Maria Clemencia Ramirez, of the Colombian Institute of Anthropology and History
  • Luis Fernando Castro of Colombia Vive
