Letter to the Editor Campaign: NAFTA IS NOT FOR US

| Resist!

NAFTA 2.0 is becoming the equivalent of TPP amongst Mexico, Canada and the United States. We already defeated the original TPP, will you join our campaign against NAFTA?

The Trump administration’s NAFTA negotiation objectives show more clearly than ever that this agreement will not be made for us or by us. The thousands of comments submitted by the trade justice movement have been ignored as the objectives resemble the language and sentiment of the original NAFTA and defeated TPP goals. We cannot let corporations and their political representatives decide our fate. Our communities need to know that this NAFTA IS NOT FOR US. Join our letter to the editor campaign, our resistance to NAFTA must go viral!

The first step is to raise awareness about what NAFTA is and how what real Trade for People and Planet looks like. Letters to the editor are widely read and are an easy way to reach thousands of people.

    This is about Trump’s RE-negotiation of NAFTA, which had been signed into law in December, 1993 by Bill Clinton. As he signed it, Bill Clinton said: “”NAFTA means jobs. American jobs, and good-paying American jobs.” Nation magazine says that the Trump plan is “starting to look a lot like the TPP.” Well, Hillary Clinton referred to the TPP as the “gold standard” of trade agreements (until the issue became a problem during her campaign).

    Democrats can stop worrying. There is every reason to believe that Trump will preserve and strengthen the very spirit of these trade agreements.
