Soccer star Maradona and Nobel Prize recipient Esquivel to march against ‘free trade’ and Bush’s presence in Argentina as part of the 3rd Peoples’ Summit November 1-5: “Another Americas is possible”
“Another Americas is possible”
The 3rd Peoples’ Summit of the Americas is taking place in Mar del Plata, Argentina from
November 1st to 5th . The 2nd Peoples’ Summit took place just over four years ago in
Quebec City, at which over 60,000 people marched to show their opposition to the ‘free
trade’ agenda being promoted by the Presidents of the Americas.
Now all the Presidents are meeting again on Nov. 4 & 5 in Mar del
Plata, and the Bush administration (with a nod from Canada) is
once again pushing the ‘free trade’ agenda as the solution to
widespread poverty and growing unemployment. However, four
years after Quebec City, there is strong opposition to this
corporate trade model in every country of the Americas.
Soccer star Maradona will march alongside Nobel Peace Prize
recipient Perez Esquivel and other notables on November 4 th to
illustrate the depth of opposition to re- starting the Free Trade
Area of the Americas (FTAA) talks. Venezuela’s President, Hugo Chavez, will leave the
presidential enclave and address thousands of Peoples Summit participants at mid-day on
the 4 th .
