Public Record - Challenging the Security Partnership of North America


The group “Integrate This!” hosts a conference to explore concerns about the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) of North America, March 31–April 1, 2007. Established in 2005 by Canada, the United States, and Mexico, the SPP’s aim is to address security, prosperity, and quality of life issues affecting partnership members.

This March 31st session, entitled “The North America We Really Want,” focuses on ideal visions for North American countries.

Bertha Luján (Minister of Labour for the “Legitimate Government of Mexico”) discusses negative effects of free trade agreements on Mexican sovereignty.

Antonia Juhasz (author of “The Bu$h Agenda: Invading the World One Economy at a Time”) analyzes political strategies used by U.S. President George W. Bush’s administration to gain public support for free trade agreements. Maude Barlow (national chairperson for the Council of Canadians) speaks about protest efforts underway to oppose the SPP. She also outlines some of the demands put forward by these opposition groups.

Throughout the session, Judy Rebick (social justice advocate and conference moderator) poses questions to the panellists
