Anti North American Union protests planned in 7 cities for November 17th

Organizers are planning to protest the North American Union in 7 cities on November 17th. Protests are planned in Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Yakima, WA.

The nation wide protest march is in opposition to the Security & Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) and establishment of a North American Union between the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

The website dubbed ‘March for America’ states:

“The SPP is a “hostile takeover of democracy” by the leaders of the United States, Canada & Mexico in collaboration with un-elected and unaccountable corporate elite “working groups” who are integrating and “harmonizing” policies and regulations between the three nations without any public forum or congressional oversight.”

Critics have charged that the Bush administration has been attempting through Executive Initiative to replace U.S. representative government with a North American Union. The SPP was not authorized by Congress.

They see moves that have increased the power of the Executive Branch of government as a tool to be used at the behest of an international oligarchy.

The proposed plan for a North American Union on the Council on Foreign Relations wevsite, calls for a 15 member council that includes five members from each nation, which will set the agenda for the president instead of Congress.

The plan also calls for replacing Congress with a North American Parliament and a North American Court to replace the U.S. Supreme Court as well as a new continental perimeter and a continental tariff. It also calls for integrated Homeland Security and Customs.

Former Mexican President Vincente Fox has said recently that he supported massive immigration into the U.S. in order to integrate the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, to further the long term goal of a North American Union.

I just spent three weeks in a Montreal looney bin for my political views on the subject of Canadian sovereignty and North American Union. Visit my blog: CRAZY FOR CANADA.
