Global Exchange talk planned for Olympia WA

The Alliance for Democracy's Olympia chapter will be hosting three speakers for a presentation on "Better Neighbors: A New Way Forward for North America--A Critical Look at the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP).

The presentation will take place on Wednesday, April 2, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Traditions Cafe and World Art, 300 5th Avenue SW (360-705-2819).

The talk features Carleen Pickard from the Council of Canadians, Hector Sanchez, from Global Exchange, and John Gibler, an independent journalist and Global Exchange fellow. Hear about the failures of NAFTA, and its behind-closed-doors evolution into the Security and Prosperity Partnership. The speakers will provide an incisive overview of economic and security policies under SPP and the links between bad trade policies and accelerated Mexican migration to the US.

The SPP will affect virtually every aspect of our lives. Yet it is being orchestrated without public or congressional scrutiny or vote. Please join us to learn more about its wide-ranging impacts. Suggested donation, $3.
