BREAKING: Congress, Parliaments & People vs. SPP.Gov / NAFTA: 2 in New Orleans (Apr 21st - 22nd)
NDP vs. SPP: Peter Julian - SPP is Anti-Democratic By Design
BREAKING: Congress, Parliaments & People vs. SPP.Gov / NAFTA: 2 in New Orleans (Apr 21st - 22nd)
With the fourth SPP.Gov / North American Leaders Summit announced during the last State of the Union Address and taking place in New Orleans on April 21st and 22nd, it's amazing how little it's being discussed by most politicians, people and press we see, especially with how much U.S. voters seem to hate what the previous NAFTA agreement cost them. This is not about whether countries like each other or not, this is about whether the people who live in those countries want a new and un-elected third-party bureaucracy to control everything around them.
There are three days left to make a timely issue of it, let's see what happens.
While Barack, Hillary and John won't bring it up even over a two-year election campaign and few will ask about it, the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) signed on March 23, 2005 is the sequel to NAFTA completing a European Union (EU) style North American Union (NAU) by 2010. This is the last effort to finally destroy the independence and sovereignty of Canada, America and Mexico, centralize power and ship jobs overseas. We'll still have elected officials, but with their vastly reduced power they won't get much done if they disagree with the over-arching SPP treaty rules.
Our corporate fat-cats and punk snitch-o-crats are using their fake Left vs. Right minions to tell lots of lies for lots of money instead, but we're all compromised in some way in what we say, so keep in mind "Qui bono?" or "Who benefits?" from what's said, or at least try to figure it out. The media doesn't lie for money the way most people say they do, or for a few thousand or million they can make on advertising dollars; the media lies for control over our minds and reality, which means the corporations who own them can make billions worldwide off cruelty and corruption while we are taught not to care until it affects us, at which point it's too late to fight it.
What's openly discussed and normalized now are a deep recession, food, water and energy shortages, new CO2 taxes (waiting to exhale?), new "anti-crime/anti-terror" (Boo Laden?) surveillance identification and security measures and more as we go deep into martial law under U.S. NORTHCOM (Northern Command) military-rule. They announced on their own website what was ignored by the Canadian government and the official SPP.Gov website, or the fact that U.S. and Canadian (and soon Mexican and other?) troops can be used on each other's soil in emergencies as defined by the government. The best scenario is to stay out of trouble, they're taking DNA samples from every newborn baby and everyone the cops stop for any reason, so stop speeding and stop the SPP.
Keep an eye on England, which is a year or so ahead in the globalised standardization of our culture planned by crazy old rich people using think tanks, banks, corporations, governments, foundations, education, media and more they own. Everything is connected trans-nationally at higher-levels and places are simply asked to push certain measures based on how their people will react. We have to start saying "No!" to things we don't like, which means we have to discuss them to see if we like them or not. We have to start empowering each other with knowledge to combat our abusive socialization before we have no critical-thinking or survival skills left. We have to listen to the people who've seen what's coming for a long time to speed-up our own learning curves on the challenges we face.
The War on Terror Rapture = Takes Our Rights
The Global Warming Rapture = Takes Our Stuff.
Wake your neighbours, let's all win this and chill out... :-)

New Orleans gears up for North American summit
Becky Bohrer, Associated Press Writer
April 18, 2008
NEW ORLEANS - Police expect protests but few problems when the two-day North American Leaders Summit gets under way Monday in New Orleans.
It's VIP duty as President Bush, Mexican President Felipe Calderon and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper get together to talk trade. But for the New Orleans Police Department, it's more of the same in a a string of high-profile, crowd-generating events early in 2008.
The North American summit in Quebec last August drew several hundred protesters vocal on the war in Iraq and what they claimed was a gradual merging of the three countries. There also were marches in New Orleans in 2003, when the city hosted negotiations for the Central American Free Trade Agreement.
The People's Summit in New Orleans: April 21 - 22, 2008
Our Response to NAFTA Expansion!
* Coming together for our communities.
* Linking the Gulf Coast struggle to the fight for the survival of communities in Mexico, Canada, Quebec & the rest of the United States.
* Building collective knowledge and action to transform NAFTA & other unjust economic policies pushed by Bush, Calderon, & Harper.
Makeover urged for 'North American Union' effort
Heavy criticism of continental integration prompts plan to save flagging movement
By Jerome R. Corsi
April 15, 2008
On the verge of next week's North American summit in New Orleans, a Canadian think tank has suggested renaming the "North American Union" to renew progress toward continental integration in the face of mounting criticism.
A paper entitled "Saving the North American Security and Prosperity Partnership", published last month by the Fraser Institute in Canada, contends President Bush and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper have decided to expend no more political capital in pursuing "the bust" that has occurred because of the "brand" of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America or SPP.
The solution, the authors argue, is a public relations makeover in which the goals of North American political and economic integration remain the same but the names get changed to keep trilateral arrangements between the U.S., Mexico and Canada on track.
While the paper continues to dismiss critics of the SPP as "conspiracy theorists," Fraser Institute political scientist Dr. Alexander Moens and his co-author Michael Cust, a Fraser Institute intern, proposes the name "North American Union," or NAU, be dropped in favor of a declaration that the three countries now want to create a "North American Standards and Regulatory Area," or NASRA.
Moens and Cust write that the attacks of SPP critics "are starting to hurt."
One-Thousand People = One-Million Flyers = One Big Wake-Up Call.
The SPP.Gov / North American Union is an agreement for "deep integration" of the Canadian, American and Mexican governments in "300 - 400 areas" without our permission.
For big stuff like this you'd think they'd ask us first, but since it's the sequel to NAFTA and the establishment knows how much we hated that, this time they're just trying not to tell us about it by keeping it out of the establishment media.
This response is one idea that can be tried in every city in the world as we wake our neighbours up to how it all works and how the people in charge stopped working for us a long time ago.
Simply look at the size of your city and calculate how many flyers you need to reach a certain percentage, or 1000,000 meaning 1000 flyers carried by 1000 people to reach 20% of Toronto, a healthy sized group that might all talk about it at once because they all heard about it at once.
We may not achieve that by April 19, 2008 at Dundas Square at 1 pm, but we'll get there.
The blasting of lots of completely different people at once with the same simple repeated messages we soon all repeat ourselves despite being completely different people is how propaganda created by the only people with enough control over enough media to produce it works in every example in history.
So: to counter that we have to maximize our impact with big actions of our own all at once to introduce new topics of conversation and move beyond just individual one-offs.
You can do an info-swap'n'drop to trade the work you put into translating the most important issues of the day with compassion and clarity and help inspire each others approaches.
We all need to work harder on finding ways to wake people up to what others can see as obvious, so there should be a push for the maximum number of angles, approaches and improvements on them.
Things like printing or photocopying mainstream news admissions, doing video surveys, creating a variety of flyers, posters, buttons, symbols and adding humour and wit can all help make fun to fight for freedom.
Decentralized power and honest money are all we need to save the world, which means we have to fight the centralization of power by dishonest printers of money, or the central bankers, plus the brokers, corporate fat-cats and punk snitch-o-crats who play their game, or the people they put on TV to lie to us...
Obama: No Evidence of the "North American Union"
March 31, 2008 2:01 PM
ABC's Sunlen Miller and Z. Byron Wolf Report: During a town hall meeting in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Obama was asked about the "North American Union."
The NAU is a theoretical governmental union merging the United States, Mexico and Canada that some conspiracy theorists and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul have used as a rallying cry.
Obama responded that he sees no evidence of a cabal in forming this union.
"I see no evidence of this actually taking place," he said. "I think this is something that has been ginned up on certain blogs on the internet," and mentioned Congressman Paul buying into the theory.
Obama said a lot of the speculation that these three countries were forming an European Union-like partnership was due to a highway being built in Texas that would make it easier to facilitate more transportation between Mexico, the United States and Canada.
Congressman Ron Paul said during the CNN/You Tube debate in November that, "there is a move on toward a North American Union, just like early on there was a move on for a European Union, and eventually ended up. So we had NAFTA and moving toward a NAFTA highway. These are real things. It's not somebody made these up. It's not a conspiracy."
"There's no evidence that that's taking place," Obama repeated again and then reiterated his opposition to NAFTA.
"NAFTA helped to break down barriers on trade between those two countries and I was opposed to NAFTA because I thought it didn't have the labor and environmental and safety standards that would look out for US workers. But I don't think there's some conspiracy to create this one you know, continental government between Canada and Mexico," said the Illinois senator.
Obama was also asked by the same questioner what his status is with the Council on Foreign Relations, a nonpartisan foreign policy group which has also been targeted for similar reasons by conspiracy theorists.
"I don't know if I'm an official member. I've spoken there before, it basically is a forum where people talk about foreign policy, and so there's no official membership," Obama respond, "I don't have a card or a special handshake or anything like that."

Leader of CAP Calls for Referendum and General Strike Regarding SPP
March 22, 2008
The battle lines are being drawn and the Canadian Action Party (CAP) is front and center, fighting the North American Union agenda. They are very adamant that Canada’s sovereignty should not be negotiated away. On their websites homepage it states, “A decision regarding the restructuring of Canada into an integrated North American Union with a common currency is a decision for the citizens of Canada – not for a minority government with an ineffective opposition.”
CAP is demanding full disclosure of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP). In a recent video address, their leader Connie Fogal called for a referendum and general strike in regards to the SPP. A general strike might be hard to organize, but it would be an effective way of protesting and drawing further attention to this whole process of deeper integration.
Guard resources, Ottawa urged
As North American leaders' summit approaches, poll finds Canadians want policies to guarantee energy and water supply, environmental standards
Linda Diebel, National Affairs Writer
The Toronto Star
April 15, 2008
Canadians overwhelmingly sent a message to Prime Minister Stephen Harper to ease up on integration with U.S. policy and protect the country's water, energy and public regulations, according to the results of a recent poll.
The poll comes as Harper, U.S. President George W. Bush and Mexican President Felipe Calderon prepare for next week's leaders' summit in New Orleans on the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) of North America.
To be released today by the Council of Canadians, the poll was conducted April 7 to 10 by Environics and obtained by the Toronto Star.
The council opposes the secrecy surrounding the high-level talks.
In fact, probably the best way for Canadians to learn about what's on the table in negotiations – which cover everything from greater energy integration to harmonization of health and product regulations – is to research U.S. government websites. "It's been four years since the launch of the SPP and while corporations have been given a seat at the negotiating table, the Canadian government has never asked the public how they feel about it," said council chair Maude Barlow.
Support for more nationalist policies was high almost across the board, according to the poll:
• 89 per cent want an energy policy guaranteeing Canadian supply and protecting the environment, "even if this means placing restrictions on exports and foreign ownership of Canadian supplies."
Support was highest in Harper's home province of Alberta, with 92 per cent in favour of such an energy policy.
Barlow argues SPP talks already are taking Canada toward greater energy integration with the U.S. and points out agreements have been signed and working groups set up with, among other aims, to increase Alberta tar sands production.
However, there have been arguments any restriction on energy exports would contravene the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which binds Canada to continue energy exports to the U.S. even in times of crisis.
As well, while Canada produced one billion barrels of oil in 2008 - 40 per cent above domestic consumption - it is an oil-importing nation.
• 88 per cent of Canadians want a comprehensive national water policy that bans bulk exports of fresh water and recognizes water as a basic human right. There are concerns water is not protected by trade agreements.
The Center for Strategic Studies and International Studies, a Washington-based think-tank, revealed SPP talks have targeted "water consumption, water transfers and artificial diversions of bulk water" from Canada. As well, Canadian diplomats recently blocked efforts by the United Nations to recognize water as a basic human right.
• 87 per cent agree Canada should set its own independent environmental, health and safety standards, "even if it might reduce cross-border trade opportunities with the United States." Council researcher Stuart Trew said the product-safety legislation introduced last week by the Harper government includes SPP goals for harmonization by allowing greater corporate oversight of products.
• 86 per cent agree the SPP should be debated in the House of Commons and submitted to a parliamentary vote.
In its analysis of the results, the Council of Canadians criticized Harper and his counterparts for allowing a select group of corporate leaders in the North American Competitiveness Council to have "VIP access to annual trilateral summits like the one taking place April 21-22 in New Orleans."
For the poll, Environics interviewed 1,007 people, resulting in a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
