Thread Name: Quebec City Protest - Part 2
Subject: RE: Quebec City Protest - Part 2
Nope. It means a free ride for corporate America...on the backs of its own citizenry, as well as those of ordinary people all over this planet, particularly those in 3rd world countries. It means the destruction of local and national sovereignty for the benefit of a few rich international players who have no allegiance to anything but profit. It means ecological and social disaster for most of the world, while the rich protect themselves in tax havens equivalent to gated communities, and the pimps who hire out to them man the guns at the checkpoints and listen nervously for the sounds of many feet approaching...or of tumbrils clattering down cobblestone streets toward some glowering 21st century Bastille.
