Join us for a dinner and information session on the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), an agreement that will be discussed at an upcoming summit between the ‘leaders’ of North America, U.S. President George Bush, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and Mexican President Phillipe Calderon. This upcoming summit on the SPP is taking place just an hour outside of Montréal in Montebello Quebec on August 20th-21st.

The SPP is an agreement that is to expand the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), ‘national security’ programs and national immigration control increasing border ‘security’ while forcing serious restrictions on free movement of people…

This information session will examine how the SPP will detrimentally effect our daily lives in Côte-des-Neiges; in our hospitals, workplaces, schools and beyond. This event will also address how the SPP affects racialized or marginalized communities, especially migrant or refugee communities, with ever growing institutional accusations surrounding ‘national security’.

This community event is organized by Immigrant Workers Centre, No One Is Illegal & Tadamon! Montreal.
