NAFTA and all the trade agreements are egregious assaults on citizens’ rights on all sorts of issues: privacy, net neutrality, labor, banking, local sovereignty, environment and so much more. Our food system will become even more toxic, we won’t know where our food comes from and farm workers will be treated even worse than they are today.

The United States Trade Representative (USTR) revealed its NAFTA objectives,
THAT DEAL IS NOT FOR US
NAFTA 2.0 is becoming the equivalent of TPP amongst Mexico, Canada and the United States.
We already defeated the original TPP, will you join our campaign against NAFTA?
The Trump administration’s NAFTA negotiation objectives show more clearly than ever that this agreement will not be made for us or by us. The thousands of comments submitted by the trade justice movement have been ignored as the objectives resemble the language and sentiment of the original NAFTA and defeated TPP goals. We cannot let corporations and their political representatives decide our fate. Our communities need to know that this NAFTA IS NOT FOR US.
