A film by Bryan Law and Dan Dicks, 'United We Fall' is a documentary about the North American Union, (a.k.a. NAFTA) that is being developed right now between Canada, the United States, and Mexico.

NAFTA been good for some powerful sectors and not at all good for poor, working people, for those that are not benefiting from corporate profits. For example, in Canada since signing a bilateral free trade agreement with the United States, two thirds of the Canadian families have experienced a decline in their real incomes.

The North American Free Trade Agreement has also displaced 2 million Mexican peasant farmers from their land. Some of them have migrated to cities and about half a million every year try to enter illegally into the United States to find work. It's proven to be not so good for the people at the bottom of the social ladder.

One of the major concerns that Canada and Mexico have about NAFTA is that it might open their capital to being taken over by US multinational corporations. Large corporations are automatically given the rights of a "citizen" within that nation and by that, as a citizen, the corporations are allowed to challenge the laws in that country. Such provisions allow a corporation to sue a national government, if it feels that is not getting the treatment that would be entitled to under NAFTA.

This film takes a look at all sides of the debate; about its benefits and harms, by interviewing both insiders and activists who have been at the heart of this heated debate. The film also looks to the broader agenda of building a world government ("NWO") and its implications.

Featured Interviews include:
Robert Pastor (Council on Foreign Relations)
Allan Gotlieb (Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg)
Herbert Grubel (Creator of the "Amero")
John Manley (President of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives)
Luke Rudkowski (We Are Change)
Dan Dicks (Press For Truth)
Vijay Sarma (Political Activist, Independent Journalist)
Dr. Andrew Moulden (Canadian Action Party)
Richard Syrett (Talk Radio Host)

bluesbaby5050: NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement)......

On December 17, 1992, Canada, Mexico, and the United States entered into a historical trade pact called the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). It aims to increase trade by expanding market access and reducing investment barriers across North American borders. Of the many aspects of the debate in the United States over the ratification of NAFTA, none received as much attention as the potential impact of the agreement on the environment. A number of issues including labor market disruptions fueled intense debate over NAFTA, especially in the United States. But no issue received as much attention as the impact of NAFTA on the environment. Debate focused on (1) possible threats posed to previously signed U.S. domestic environmental laws and international environmental agreements; (2) concern that harmonization of environmental standards would result in acceptance of the least common denominator; and (3) fear that U.S. industries would establish pollution havens in Mexico, where labor is cheaper and enforcement of regulations is weaker than in the United States.

In order to allay such concerns, several provisions were added to the NAFTA text. For example, the preamble commits governments to undertake increased trade in "a manner consistent with environmental protection and conservation," and the agreement's dispute-settlement provisions can place the burden on the country challenging an environmental regulation. In addition, prior to NAFTA entering into force on January 1, 1994, the participating governments agreed to the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation (NAAEC), which obliges each country to "ensure that its laws and regulations provide for high levels of environmental protection and to strive to continue to improve those laws and regulations." It also ensures access by private persons to fair and equitable administrative and judicial proceedings on matters pertaining to the environment. The NAAEC established the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC), which has three institutional components: a Council, a Secretariat, and a Joint Public Advisory Committee. The Council, assisted by the Secretariat, is charged with monitoring NAFTA's environmental impacts. When they uncover adverse environmental impacts, they publicize them in various ways, including posting notices on their web site. The aim of the council is that, by means of this public shaming, countries will take action to remedy these situations.
