Mexico En Riesgo (Mexico's Risk of Injury)
Red Mexicana de Accion frente al Libre Commericio
What is the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America
(SPPNA)? What the implications for Mexico and people in the US and
Canada? Signed in to law in March 2006 by the elected leaders of
these three countries, the SPPNA, also know as NAFTA-plus, give a new
meaning to the mode of of political authority and subordinated
inclusion deployed by the interests of the US and the globalized
enterprises. Even thought it's impacts concern to the everyday
people's life, those governments haven't informed about the content
expounded in their indoors cabal., Such an anti-democratic behavior
developed in the presidents involved in this treaty, discloses an
unwilling self-interest in sharing the specific information to the
legislatures of each country.
Feature Film: Maquilopolis (68 mins)
Since the inception of NAFTA, many factories have left the US and set
up shop in Mexico, where environmental standards are less stringent
and labor is cheaper. The factories dump their waste into surrounding
neighborhoods, affecting the environment and health of factory
workers and their families. Maquilopolis documents the heroic efforts
of women factory workers in Tijuana to end their mistreatment at the
hands of foreign corporations.
