Wednesday September 25, 2019
Kaneff Tower 519
3:00 - 5:00
The Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) falls short of any real alternative, rather it follows a long line of neoliberal liberal trade agreements that have little to do with trade and everything to do with facilitating profit generation for multinational corporations.
Join us for a discussion about the trade agenda and the current political context in Mexico and Canada as well explore alternative forms of trade and build North-South cooperation.
