The Summit of the Americas in Quebec City put the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) on the map for many Canadians. Governments including the Canadian government are negotiating yet another free trade deal that will extend the trade and investment provisions of NAFTA across the Americas. Workers and citizens will pay the economic, environmental and social costs.

Across the Americas, citizens are mobilizing to demand that their governments reject the FTAA. Over ten million Brazilians recently voted in a popular plebiscite on the FTAA and over 98 per cent voted against the agreement. Lets add our Canadian voices to the opposition.

Common Frontiers is organizing a major campaign to say “No” to the FTAA. Click here to connect to the campaign. Youll find a link to the online petition. Youll also be able to download a petition you can circulate in your local and your community, as well as campaign updates and background information on the dangers of the FTAA. The petition and a campaign call-out document are available to download in English and French.
