Open Invitation to the public to discuss the No To CETA campaign

Over the summer a few of us from the Occupy Movement decided to start up a No To CETA campaign.  We prepared a video, gave ourselves a name  (Citizens Against CETA), set up a blog page and formed a partnership with the Council of Canadians.  Read more in this article published by The Independent. 

On October 3rd, at 7:30 in the Oak room at the Lantern, we, along with the local chapter of the Council of Canadians, are holding a meeting for their members and any concerned citizens wishing to get involved or learn more.  The purpose is to look at strategies to get the message out, both to the public and the politicians.

Watch the informational video HERE.

Read more about the problematic implication of Investors Rights (and the precedents that have been set under NAFTA) for CETA.

The federal government is hoping to have the deal signed by the end of the year so there is a real sense of urgency. We hope to see you at the meeting. Your expertise and ideas are needed.
