Since the start of the meeting of the Committee of Commercial Negotiations of the FTAA in Puebla, there have been different mobilizations against the advance of the agreement. Rocio Magdaleno, of the Mexican Network of Action Facing the Free Trade outlined the activities done by the parliamentarians, in parallel to the CCN meeting.
Finally, today is being made a mobilization to the Conventions Centre were the viceministers that are participating in the negotiations are met.
