When: Thu., Sept. 26, 11:45 a.m. 2013
Why North Carolinians should be worried about the "Trans-Pacific Partnership." Featuring Lori Wallach, Director of the Global Trade Watch Division at the national advocacy group Public Citizen. Co-sponsored by AFL-CIO of North Carolina, Witness for Peace & Balance & Advocacy in Journalism. NC’s shuttered manufacturing plants & record unemployment rates both serve as powerful daily reminders of the lasting impact of NAFTA, CAFTA & other alphabet soup trade deals negotiated by far-off politicians & corporate giants. Now, amazingly enough, yet another such trade agreement is being negotiated in secret, & it could be the worst one yet. RSVP.
