"We fight against those that are seeking to impose the neoliberal model upon us, a model that seeks to privatize our land, our seeds and our water; a model of free trade that makes it impossible for us to make a living in a dignified manner."
Senator Jorge Robledo announced on Sunday new demonstrations against the congressional approval of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the governments of Colombia and the US.
We call on Governments to review existing FTAs and, to postpone for further examination and public scrutiny the FTAs currently being negotiated or proposed, particularly the proposed EU-ASEAN FTA, and FTAs with Japan and the United States under consideration by several ASEAN members.
