“SPP violates the law, and technically speaking, it is a coup d’etat”
January 6, 2008
The North American Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) is a new attempt to strengthen neo-liberal polices in North America against the background of the difficulties and failures that both the approval of the Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) have had in several countries of the continent. The SPP adds the new element of security to the commercial interests of the large transnational corporations.
Alberto Arroyo, member of the Mexican Action Network on Free Trade (RMALC) and professor of Political Science at the Autonomous Metropolitan University of Mexico (UNAM) talks about the SPP and its dangers in this 2007 interview.
