What it’s aboutWorkers Pic

The III Peoples’ Summit is taking place in Mar del Plata, Argentina from November 1-5 – parallel to the IV Summit of the Presidents of the Americas. With Canada’s tacit approval, the Bush administration has signaled its intent to push ‘free trade’ to the top of the Presidents’ agenda.

What’s in the brochure?

The 4-page brochure outlines in clear language what’s at stake, with a focus on the agendas at play and the main actors involved. The text combines with graphics by ArtWork to illustrate key moments in recent ‘free trade’ struggles. The brochure also begins a discussion on what we can do to make our voices heard in the building of an Americas that is different from what the corporations have in mind.
