What is the FTAA and Corporate Globalization?
The Free Trade Area of Americas (FTAA) is an international business deal, disguised as a proposed treaty, that would create the world's
largest free market zone—
affecting 650 million people and
$9 trillion in capital.

What’s wrong with the FTAA?

The FTAA allows corporations to bypass democratically adopted environmental or worker protection laws, increasing corporate power while endangering the lives of millions of people, disproportionately affecting women and people of color.

• The FTAA threatens to commodify our lives by turning over the control of our schools, electricity, water, and food to corporations whose only interest is more profit.

• The FTAA is being negotiated in secret. Initiated in 1994 by the 34 countries of North and South America (excluding Cuba), governments have included the business sector in FTAA talks every step of the way, but have kept the text of the treaty secret from regular people and their elected representatives. 50 members of the US House of Representatives have written to the Bush administration demanding that the text be released.

For more examples of what's wrong with the FTAA

Can the FTAA be stopped?

Since the system corporate globalization hurts nearly every sector of society, it paradoxically offers the possibility of uniting broad sectors into a mass movement capable of not only stopping the FTAA, but creating radical social change. The history of the international movement against globalization shows the challenges, but also the possibilities of globalizing human need, not corporate greed. By reclaiming control over our daily lives through community and mass action we can overcome. The movement for direct democracy has already begun!

Continue Resisting!!!!

The FTAA has not yet been defeated. The presence of thousands of people in the streets of Quebec City and in other cities throughout the Americas illuminated the FTAA for all to see it for what it really is, but the struggle is far from over. We have the power to stop global trade and corporate elitism by organizing and educating ourselves so that we can topple the philosophy of greed and replace it with our own vision for the future. What do you want to do to stop the FTAA?
