Last night I attended an event about the US-Colombia FTA. The speaker from Witness for Peace showed how “free” trade isn’t fair trade, but mainly benefits the corporations and leadership in each country. He discussed what has been learned from NAFTA’s effects on jobs in the US and disruptions to workers and farmers in Latin America.
More from Witness for Peace (the presenter last night works for them; he’s presented at AMBS in the past) and ICPJ:
