Canada: Shut Down Atlantica!
Anti-Authoritarian, Anti-Capitalist Contingent!
This summer while people across the globe converge in Germany to shut down the meeting of the G8 we will be taking action in the streets of Halifax to stop the destructive policies of the proponents of Atlantica. June 14th to 16th, over 500 delegates will meet in Halifax, Nova Scotia to discuss their plans to go ahead with the Atlantica accord. Atlantica is a proposed deep integration concept that includes the Canadian Maritime provinces and the United States north-east states that seeks to harmonize trade regulations and remove barriers to trade. Like we have seen with NAFTA and the FTAA these barriers are things such as environmental regulations, food safety, social services and now minimum wage legislation. Atlantica is an insult and an attack on our lives!
