MONTEBELLO, QUEBEC, CANADA: ANTI-GLOBALIZATION

Bush, Harper and Calderon meeting in Montebello, Quebec - Scrap the SPP!

 
From August 20-21, 2007, George Bush (President of the USA), Stephen Harper (Prime Minister of Canada) and Felipe Calderon (President of Mexico) will be in Montebello, Quebec, just 90 minutes from Montreal.

They are meeting at the Chateau Montebello, as part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), also known as the "Three Amigos," Summit. They claim to be talking about security and prosperity, but many critics are calling the SPP “NAFTA on steroids”.

The People’s Global Action Bloc (PGA-Bloc) is a coalition of various anti-capitalist groups from Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City, Toronto, and Vancouver who will be organizing actions in Montebello and across Canada from August 19-21 to show their resistance to the SPP.

The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) was founded in March 2005 at a summit of the Heads of State of Canada, the US, and Mexico. SPP is not an official treaty; it is not an official law; rather, it is being presented as a vague 'diaologue based on shared values'.

The North American Forum sponsored one of the various secretive meetings in Sept 2006 in Banff Springs, Alberta, Canada. When asked by the media if he was in attendance, Stockwell Day (Public Safety Minister of Canada) refused to confirm he was there, but said that even if he was, it was a "private" meeting that he would not comment on.

The SPP is a NAFTA-plus-Homeland-Security model. The founding premise of the SPP is that an agenda of economic free trade and national security will result in human prosperity. Yet opponents of the SPP claim that the so-called "prosperity" of previous free trade agreements such as NAFTA have only brought corporate prosperity, with increasing rates of poverty and displacement for the majority of people.

The People’s Global Action Bloc (PGA Bloc) has called for 3 days of actions to disrupt the SPP summit in Montebello. August 19th will be a day of creative resistance and popular education against the SPP in the Montebello area. August 20th will be the day of disruption of the SPP summit, beginning at noon in Montebello, and continuing through until August 21.

Parallel to the demonstrations, there will also be a self-managed protest camp just outside of Montebello in the village of Notre Dame de la Paix. The Camp is an open collective life zone fostering reflection and creation in order to allow committed individuals and groups to bring their actions together for the development of a society based on solidarity.

The Ottawa based Stop the SPP coalition, as well as the Council of Canadians, also plan on holding family-friendly demonstrations in Montebello on August 20. (www.stopspp.ca)

==> WHO IS BEHIND THE SPP?

"No item - not Canadian water, not Mexican oil, not American anti-dumping laws - "is off the table"; rather, contentious or intractable issues will simply require more time to ripen politically."
- Leaked Minutes of a 2004 meeting of the Task Force on the Future of North America

The North American Competitiveness Council (NACC) was launched as part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) in June 2006. It is the only formal advisory board to the SPP and is made up of 30 corporate leaders from Canada, the U.S. and Mexico with ten advisors from each of the SPP signatory states.

Minutes from a January 10, 2006 tri-national Public-Private Sector Dialogue on the Security and Prosperity Partnership" reveal exactly why the NACC was created - to "engage substantively and pragmatically on trade and security issues without undue deference to political sensitivities." A September 13, 2006 story in Maclean's magazine describes NACC as a "cherrypicked group of executives who were whisked to Cancun [Mexico] in March by the leaders of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, and asked to come up with a plan for taking North American integration beyond NAFTA."

The NACC has become the concrete reality emerging from proposals by corporate think-tanks such the Canadian Council of Chief Executives (CCCE), the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Consejo Mexicano De Asuntos Internacionels (COMEXI) to have a trilateral corporate body which would advise the three governments on issues ranging from military integration to securing energy resources to controlling migration.

In Canada, the CCE is a CEO organization whose corporations administer in excess of C$2.1 trillion in assets. In January 2003, CCCE launched its North American Security and Prosperity Initiative to increase investment and capital flows, integrate security agreements and military defence, and expedited means of resource (oil, natural gas, water, forest products) extraction. This has essentially become the template for the SPP. In short, the NACC, representing private corporate interests, has been "institutionalized" as a policy-making body, thus formalizing and deepening the existing patterns of influence that corporations already have.

While anti-capitalists fight hard with few resources, environmentalists and other "do-gooders" in the US waste 5 billion dollars a year - mostly on raising the 5 billion. Who is the worst enemy? The right wingers of the world who we well know where they stand: death, greed , destruction and inevitably mass murder and genocide/ecocide -- Or: the so-called liberlas, greens and anti-war crowd who have many billions $$$ and millions of dollars and yet do not show up for one of Bush's last appearances?


Below is a typical email alert I receive about "so-called environmental issues" in the US:

The end of the Bush and Cheney Dictatorship

"Smile! You're now on Candid Camera. A photograph lasts forever."

JFK and his son were killed for desiring World Peace-It was not an accident
JFK and his son were killed for desiring World Peace-It was not an accident

This is a photo of Mr. Fisher leading a protest at night on embassy row
This is a photo of Mr. Fisher leading a protest at night on embassy row

The truth is now getting reported and America's hero and Patriot Jeff Fisher never gave up on the children of BayPoint School and the evidence of July 27, 2004 even though many people tried to stop him. Mr. Fisher saved America and this planet with his evidence and will be remembered for his actions for your nation and the free world. Many people were harmed because of Mr. Fisher uncovering the absolute truth yet his evidence will create peace on a global scale. In my nation I say Σας ευχαριστώ για την ύπαρξη άτομο του Θεού.

The editors of Indy Media.org must comprehend the truth and that to have my Division involved means it has to be completely the absolute truth. Welcome to the real world and the real truth.

Here is what I am all about.

Genocide, War Crimes, and Crimes Against Humanity

The article below is written by Roger Rancourt.
So many people in your nation are trying to cover-up this information.
Is America that sick and perverted?

No it is not. Just those that will not accept the absolute facts.

The website  http://www.NoMoreFraud.blogspot is all about that. On August 4th 2006 the U.S.S.S. and the U.S. Marshall Service began a very complicated and extensive investigation into Jeff Fisher and his evidence. Mr. Fisher had to go to all kinds of extremes to get things done for the truth to prevail.

He like John Caylor have also gone to jail due to this evidence. Interpol is expecting Indymedia.org to cooperate and report the absolute truth.

The good news is that The Police States around the World will go away because of Jeff Fisher.

The wars around the war will go away because of Jeff Fisher.

Mr. Fisher deserves respect and honor now.

You have censure him long enough.

Millions of people know about him.

Join now and end the lies that keep harming people all around the world.

Mr. Fisher said to three Interpol agents last week in Largo Maryland at church that he looks at the world as a village and the village had a choice. Survival and Peace or Misery, Death and War. He said he chose Survival and Peace.


To All Prosecutors, Delegates as well as Media;


The Washington Post has finally decided to jump on the bandwagon, did the realization of absolute HIGH TREASON staring you in the face finally wake your editors up to reality?

 http://insider-magazine.com/unrestricted_warfare.htm

Are all these problems really the fault of the Bushes or the Clintons in the end, or were they nothing but puppets on a string dancing to the threats and tune of a sinister agenda? Since day one??

 http://letsibeledmondsspeak.blogspot.com
ECO SECRETARIAT WAS THE REAL REASON FOR THE WARS: DICK CHENEY'S ECO SECRETARIAT AGREEMENT WITH PRESIDENT AILYEV OF AZERBAIJAN ET. ALL

"Less than two months later, Vice President Cheney went to Lithuania to deliver the toughest U.S. indictment of Putin's leadership. But the next day, Cheney flew to oil-rich Kazakhstan and embraced its autocratic leader, Nursultan Nazarbayev, with not a word of criticism. The juxtaposition made the talk of democracy look phony and provided ammunition to the Kremlin.

Yet the latest administration budget cut millions of dollars for human rights and democracy programs in places such as Burma, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. The administration allotted less democracy money for Russia than for Liberia, according to Freedom House. Even better-funded programs in Iraq have relied on Congress to provide money the administration would not.

"The promotion of democracy has been institutionalized in the State Department," said Undersecretary of State Paula J. Dobriansky. "There has been very significant change. At the same time, there are areas where we can change more, and we will."

Others aren't as sanguine. "If the president was announcing a grand strategy, it doesn't look like his goals are being attained," Zelikow said.

Lorne W. Craner, Bush's first-term assistant secretary of state for democracy and now president of the International Republican Institute, which advocates democracy, said: "I don't think the bureaucracy was reorganized to follow up on the policy. The architecture has not yet been configured to realize the president's promise."

Many of the original architects of Bush's vision are gone. Gerson, Bartlett and Wehner have left the White House, and Rove will by the end of the month. Deputy national security adviser Elliott Abrams has been perhaps the most forceful advocate of democracy promotion within the administration, yet he has less time to work on it these days because he also oversees Middle East policy.

And every day brings a new test. As Bush was in Prague, aides debated an upcoming White House visit by Vietnamese President Nguyen Minh Triet. Hanoi was arresting political opponents, and the White House "came this close" to canceling the visit, one official said. Instead, it decided to demonstrate its pique by refusing to issue a joint statement with Triet and not letting him stay at Blair House.

An ongoing debate involves the Kazakh leader, whom Cheney called "my friend." Nazarbayev wants to chair the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe , which monitors elections. Some Bush aides are appalled that voting would be overseen by a man who arranged his reelection with 91 percent of the vote and changed the constitution in May to allow himself to remain in office for life. Just this weekend, the OSCE monitored parliamentary elections in Kazakhstan and concluded that, while there was progress, they did not meet international standards."  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/08/19/AR2007081901720_pf.html
"Vice President Richard Cheney, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, ministers of trade Donald Evans and of defence Donald Ramsfeld, and the US co-chairman of the OSCE Minsk Group Rudolph Perina. Also, Mr Aliyev has had talks with the management of the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation, took part in the large conference 'East-West Corridor: Reality' arranged by Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey and US Administration and dedicated to the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan and Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum pipelines, and attended the signing of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court by the Azeri Ambassador to USA Hafiz Pashayev and Deputy Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia Elisabeth Jones. Pursuant to that agreement, the parties to it agree not to go to the International Criminal Court over crimes committed by Azeri citizens in USA and by US citizens in Azerbaijan.
The agenda of all those meetings was rather extensive and covered the present condition of bilateral relations, the progress in the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan project, the efforts made to resolve the Armenian-Azeri conflict, the possibility of joint counter-terrorism and regional as well as global developments."  http://www.ice.gov.it/estero2/baku/febbraio03.htm

 http://www.arcticgaspipeline.com/7-2002.htm

You even yourselves ADMIT that Cheney's official reason for all of this massive treason was Eco Secretariat, the Organization for Security & Co-Operation agreement.....To complete the Baku-Ceyhan-Ezereum Pipeline frauds. Democracy at the barrel of a gun sure sounds alot more profitable not to mention economic, when you're the one profiting off of it in the TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS don't you THINK BY THE SOUNDS OF THAT WASHINGTON POST?!??????

Will you report that news too media, or allow the truth to be CENSORED while Sibel Edmonds & the rest have to go higher to get justice?

THE NEWS OF THIS FRONT PAGE WOULD MAKE THE BIGGEST STORY WOULD IT NOT....
http:// www.amnestyusa.org/page.do?id=1105323
"One of the new dictator's first acts was to brutally suppress popular protests in Baku, with Aliyev's security forces arbitrarily arresting hundreds of opposition members and killing at least two people. The next day, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage officially congratulated Aliyev on his "strong showing" in the elections. Armitage is a former board member of the Washington, D.C.-based U.S.-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce, set up nine years ago to support American companies' activities in Azerbaijan's multi-billion dollar oil industry. Many Azeris noted which side Washington took when promoting democracy and human rights clashed with ensuring stability for oil investments."

The only traitors here appear to be the abysmal failure Richard Armitage, always looking out for the almighty dollar along with Snowcroft, the unapologetic Aliyev, Cheney & his followers.
TOTAL TREASON AGAINST AMERICA AVERTED BY WORLD WHISTLE-BLOWERS

DICK CHENEY UNDER ARREST STARTING IN AUSTRALIA, WHERE HE, NETANYAHU & ALIYEV HAVE BEEN INFORMED THERE WILL BE NO IRANIAN WAR HOLOCAUST AND THEY MUST STAND TRIAL FOR HIGH TREASON. IMPEACHMENT.
 http://stewwebb.com/richard_cheney_now_under_arrest.htm
" Cheney along with Former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have been accused of High Treason against the United States Of America in which Cheney and Netanyahu conspired to make available as much as Two Trillion Dollars for a 3 prong purpose.

(1) To use a portion of these funds to Bribe the United States Congress and other Military Officers to go along with an Aerial Bombardment and Attack on Iran.

Included in this plot would be the attempt to Decapitate and Eliminate the Iranian President and Government.

bush_will_attack_iran_in_48_hour_08_16_2007.htm

(2) The second aspect of the program involving these funds would be to Bribe and Blackmail the British-Yiddish-Zionist U.S. Media filth that control the American Media."

SHOULD THAT NOT BE FRONT PAGE NEWS????
"Blackwater guards the US ambassador, Zalmay Khalilzad. They guard several regional occupation offices in the country. But then another fact which goes largely unreported is that while Blackwater portrays itself as a sort of "American pie" business, an all-American company, it has actually recruited mercenaries from some serious human-rights-violating countries: Chile, Colombia, and elsewhere. They've deployed them as part of their force in Iraq. JS: Blackwater was sent by the Bush administration into Azerbaijan to set up a Special Forces unit of the Azerbaijani military. It's a 90-man unit modelled on the US Navy Seals. At the same time, Blackwater built in the port city of Baku a command-and-control center that had been a Special Forces base of the Soviet Union. And so Blackwater sets up this command-and-control center and builds up this 90-man Azeri unit based on US Navy Seals right at Iran's back door. The point of that contract was for Blackwater to set up a military presence -- a heavy military presence -- in a strategically important area. The Caspian Sea, of course, is wealthy with oil and natural gas. But also it's a strategic area and some analysts have said that it could be used as a forward operating base in an attack against Iran. The Iranians took this as a very hostile act and, in fact, deployed a special unit of the Iranian navy in the Caspian Sea as a direct response to Blackwater's presence there. "  http://prairieweather.typepad.com/the_scribe/2007/03/blackwater_usa_.html

I WOULD THINK THAT WOULD BE OF MORE INTERNATIONAL IMPORTANCE, THAN BASHING BUSH OR CONGRESS FOR ONCE EH?

FUNNY HOW PELOSI & THE WHITE HOUSE HAD EVERYTHING TO DO WITH SECURELY SAVING LIVES & HAVING CHENEY ARRESTED......

CHEW ON THOSE FACTS YET?? REGARDLESS OF BUSH'S PAST CRIMES, HE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT AMOUNTS TO HIGH TREASON AGAINST THE UNITED STATES. DICK CHENEY & ZALMAY KHALIZAD, NETANYAHU, ABDULLAH GUL IN FACT ARE RESPONSIBLE!!!

 http://www.btinternet.com/~nlpwessex/Documents/armitagecheneyasia.htm
" Backing the Caspian plan is none other than Vice President Dick Cheney, who, as CEO of Halliburton was successful in winning contracts from Caspian Sea states to be part of any future development. In 1994, Cheney helped to broker a deal between the oil company Chevron and the state of Kazakhstan when he sat on the Oil Advisory Board of that former soviet state. The Amarillo Globe-News reported on a 1998 talk to oil executives in which Cheney said that 'the current hot spots for major oil companies are the oil reserves in the Caspian Sea region. Former Soviet states Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan all are seeking to quickly develop their oil reserves, which languished during the years of Russian domination.' The stakes in that region could be as much as 200 billion barrels of oil and natural gas, he told the crowd.""
NEITHER YOU OR I, OR ANYONE ELSE HAD THEY BEEN PRESIDENT.....COULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO STOP DICK CHENEY OR THE OTHERS. WE WOULD HAVE BEEN TORTURED AND FORCED TO DO WHAT THEY SAID. DO YOU THINK AN ISSUE OF NATIONAL SECUIRTY SUCH AS THIS, MIGHT DESERVE FRONT HEADLINE IN THE PAPERS OUT THERE?

NOT EVEN BUSH SENIOR OR BILL CLINTON WERE A PART OF ECO SECRETARIAT.....NOR DID THEY ALLOW ENDOWMENT FOR DEMOCRACY TO DE-STABILIZE RUSSIA, & COMMIT WHAT AMOUNTS TO LARGE SCALE TREASON AND FRAUD AGAINST AMERICA & THE WORLD IN ORDER TO DESTROY EVERYBODY. IS A FORMER JEWELRY THIEF RESPONSIBLE FOR ALLOWING SOMEONE TO COMMIT TREASON WHEN THEY HAVE A GUN TO THEIR HEAD? THINK CAREFULLY
 http://www.btinternet.com/~nlpwessex/Documents/armitagecheneyasia.htm

AND HOW ABOUT TORTURE OF PEOPLE ALL OVER THESE GULAGS, UZBEKISTAN TOO? AND HOW ABOUT THE PATRIOT ACTS, AND ALL SORTS OF OTHER TREASON COMMITTED BY BLACKWATER? AND DESTROYING A CIA OPERATION, THAT TOO? AND HOW ABOUT DROWN US ALL IN TRILLIONS OF DEBT? THAT WAS ALL A CHENEY DOCTRINE TOO! HUNDREDS FROM BOTH SIDES TRIED TO ISSUE SUBPOENAS YEARS AGO, AND WERE BLOCKED BY CHENEY AND THESE SAME GOONS

THIS WAS ALL THE DOINGS OF THESE MEN, THE PRESIDENT OF KAZAHKSTAN, ALL OF THEM. WHEN DO WE GET A FRONT PAGE ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT ON THE TREASON OF THESE MEN'S ACTIONS?
 http://prairieweather.typepad.com/the_scribe/2007/03/blackwater_usa_.html

DO YOU NAIVELY THINK ANYONE WILL TOLERATE IT ANY FURTHER? THINK AGAIN....THE WHOLE WORLD HAS THE NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
