What is CETA? What does it mean for the Tar Sands? Why should we resist? Why do we need to stop this deal!

Environmental Justice Toronto is holding a teach-in about the CETA and its implications on the Tar Sands and communities.

Friday, April 1st

3-6pm Panel discussion, followed by discussion and snacks.

OISE Room 2211 (At Bedford and Bloor, St. George Subway Station)

CETA is the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement--a free trade deal between Canada and the European Union. This trade deal will allow for water, land, and oil to be exploited. Who bears the brunt of this resource exploitation?

  

What does this mean for environmental justice? What does this mean for trade justice? What does this mean for economic justice?

What do we do about it?

 

Speaker:

Clayton Thomas Mueller: Tar Sands Campaigner, Indigenous Environmental Network

Stuart Trew: Trade Campaigner, Council of Canadians

TBA: UK Tar Sands Group

Free event--snacks provided
