FTAA: Why It Is Important To Protest... And Why Protests Are Not Enough

by Bill Fletcher, Jr. / The Black World Today Tuesday, Apr. 17, 2001 at 3:50 PM

"The mobilizations for Quebec are not only about visible outrage at the impact of neo-liberal globalization, but can signal a redefining of the proverbial line, which divides friends and foes. Rather than a retreat into protectionism and national narrowness, the anti-globalization mobilizations around Quebec can help to encourage an internationalist politics defined by the needs of working people."

FTAA: Why It Is Important To Protest... And Why Protests Are Not Enough

On the weekend of April 21-22, thousands of activists are expected to gather in Quebec City (Quebec, Canada) as a further expression of the anti-globalization movement sweeping the world. In this case they will be gathering to protest governmental discussions aimed at expanding the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) into a Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (FTAA).

The irony of having such a discussion in a province, which has been a hotbed of struggles for greater sovereignty, cannot be lost on anyone. The issue of sovereignty, however, goes far and beyond the Quebec national question. It speaks to the potential rearrangement of politics and economics in the Western Hemisphere.
