Date: Friday, January 31, 2014

Place: Across North America

No more NAFTA 20 Years is Enough!

This is a call to action for communities throughout Mexico, Canada and the United States to join together on January 31, 2014, and say "ENOUGH!" to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other corporate "trade" deals. Solidarity actions elsewhere throughout the globe are also welcome.

January 2014 marks the twenty-year anniversary of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a pact that has had devastating consequences for working families, small farmers, indigenous peoples, small business and the environment in all three countries and beyond. The pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has been described as "NAFTA on Steroids." Four years into the TPP negotiations, this new corporate power grab threatens to:
-Destroy livelihoods and accelerate the global race to the bottom in wages and working conditions
-Further commodify agriculture, trample food sovereignty, hurt small farmers and contribute to forced migration
-Enable new corporate attacks on democratically-enacted environmental and consumer protections
-Undermine global economic stability by prohibiting effective regulation of financial markets
-Reduce access to life-saving generic medications, increase the costs of prescriptions, and restrict freedom on the Internet

The harm that NAFTA has already cost our communities, and the new threats that the TPP poses, must be both acknowledged and resisted. We also need to spread the word that since NAFTA, when people have come together across issue areas and across geographic borders, we have defeated similar corporate power grabs like the Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAI), the Millennial Round of the World Trade Organization, and the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA). We will do so again with the TPP.

We are calling on you to attend, and ideally help organize, a demonstration against NAFTA and the TPP in your community. An international march is already planned for Mexico City, and people are already beginning to organize actions in other cities.

In the meantime:
-Sign-up for Updates on the Day of Action
-Volunteer to Organize an Action in Your Community
-Organization Endorsements (for organizational representatives only)
