The FTAA or Free Trade Area of the Americas, is the latest in a series of global trade agreements that is trading labor, environmental and human rights for corporate profit. It would open up markets from Alaska to Argentina regardless of the impacts on local economies and communities. This mega-trade agreement is scheduled to be put into place by 2005 WITHOUT ANY public input.

But We say Our voices matter!!! HOW???

Being part of a continent-wide campaign being organized in most of the 34 counties that would be affected by the FTAA. The People's Consultation will generate public pressure through a campaign of education and action and collecting VOTES all over the Americas saying NO TO THE FTAA. The results will be gathered and presented publicly in Spring 2003.

Don’t miss this historic opportunity!!!
