Colia Clark on Free Trade

 


NAFTA and CAFTA force workers to immigrate to the US

The tariffs of the negative NAFTA and CAFTA, which promote American and Canadian corporate businesses south of the borders, are destructive of local businesses in Central and South America and the Caribbean. These businesses are the worst possible ambassadors of American goodwill and fair business practices. They engage in forced slave wages, sweat shops and child labor, and wars on the local environment. Such business practices force the local folk into poverty with no way out save immigration.

NAFTA is a hideous cancerous instrument of corporate power

Q: What do you think about expanding free trade?

A: OPPOSE - NAFTA, CAFTA, Project Hope, and other infringements on the right of businesses and workers in other nations is unacceptable. As U.S. senator from New York State, I will work on all fronts to repeal these hideous cancerous instruments of corporate powers operating under the U.S. flag. The creation and implementation of Free Trade Zones sets the stage for the violation of workers' rights under the International Declaration of Human Rights. In many cases, the right of nation states to self-determination is abridged and trumped by these tariffs and laws which subvert the economies and the cultures of nation states. I will work long and hard to have the U.S. removed as a player in these programs which violate sovereignty and natural rights, often creating environmental waste and planetary destruction.
