“Fighting FTAs” is a new publication and web site on resistance to bilateral free trade and investment agreements launched by bilaterals.org, GRAIN and BIOTHAI.
Here’s what the promotional blurb says: “While global trade talks at the World Trade Organisation (WTO) stagnate, governments and corporations are busy spinning a complex web of bilateral free trade and investment agreements (FTAs). ‘Fighting FTAs’ looks at what this FTA frenzy is really about, how social movements are fighting back and strategic learnings emerging from these struggles.”
“Fighting FTAs” is a collaborative effort of many people involved in fighting free trade on the ground. The accompanying web site offers additional texts, audio interviews, photos from the struggles, anti-FTA films and other resources.
The 102-page publication is available in English, French, Spanish and soon Thai. You can get it and much more at http://www.fightingftas.org.
Hard copies available on request from fightingftas.org[at]gmail.com. Groups are free to reproduce and translate the material.
