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.
