Several years ago I went to a public meeting/hearing about the proposed NAFTA Superhighway. I’ve not followed the issue in these past years but I do believe that it should be stopped. I came across this IMC Radio article today and thought it would be a good time to revisit the issue. BlackBox: Stopping the NAFTA Superhighway:
BlackBox talks to the members of “Roadless Summer,” organizing against the NAFTA Superhighway and Plan Puebla Panama.
For 15 years, farmer-led resistance has delayed the construction of Interstate 69, the NAFTA superhighway. Now, with the looming passage of the Free Trade Area of the Americas, the politicians and bureaucrats in Washington D.C. and the Indiana Department of Transportation are preparing to finally restart construction.
We are calling for a summer of community organizing, civil disobedience, and direct action to finally stop this bid to pave over tens of thousands of acres of forests and farms, displace hundreds of families, and destroy communities throughout the Midwest, all to serve the interests of multinational corporations.
Get the mp3. I’ll take this opportunity to recommend the Indy Media podcast: IMC Radio
