Local group 'Citizens Against CETA' speak out about secretive Canadian-European trade deal

There's a reason most people have never heard about the Canadian European Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (or CETA): it trades us away for the sake of bigger profits for multinational corporations. A local group calling themselves 'Citizens Against CETA' have put together an informational video (along with other great resources from the Council of Canadians and CUPE) to help get information out about this secretive trade agreement, which is in its final stages of negotiations and could be signed as early as the end of 2012.

Read more in a recent article in The Independent about how globalisation is set to make further inroads in Newfoundland and Labrador under CETA.

Interesting article via @healthydebate about why people should care about CETA (re: pharmaceutical drug patents)...
