National Green parties fight North American Union
- See photos and video of the newly minted coins of the North American
Union - the Amero.
Scroll down for video reports on the "progress" of the unification of
Canada, the US and Mexico.
Of course this is not just about an economic union. The SPP and NAU
would push "harmonization" of every area of government - including
foreign affairs and policy on Palestine / Israel.

National Green parties join forces to fight North American Union
Canadian and US Greens campaign against SPP.
WASHINGTON, DC/OTTAWA, ON - Green Party leaders in Canada and the US
are alerting their respective parties and the public about the
'Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America' (SPP), a
secretive deal between President Bush (US), Prime Minister Harper
(Canada), and President Calderón (Mexico).
Green Party of Canada leader Elizabeth May stated, "The SPP is
integrating the military, security, trade, economic, regulatory, and
foreign polices of Canada, the US, and Mexico without public input or
Parliamentary or Congressional scrutiny. The threat of widespread
surveillance of citizens, greenhouse gas emissions from tar sands
development and 'super-corridors,' increased fossil fuel dependence,
privatization of water, erosion of food safety and environmental
regulations, and expanded corporate power at the expense of economic
stability for working people -- these are some of the reasons we
oppose the SPP."
North American Green Parties are calling for transnational
opposition, beginning with a 'Counter Summit' teach-in and strategy
session August 20 in Ottawa to coincide with a meeting of the leaders
of Canada, the US, and Mexico at the third annual summit in Montebello
in nearby Quebec. The Green Party of the United States has endorsed
the Counter Summit and will send representatives. Greens will also
participate in civil society opposition to the Montebello Summit, with
two days of activites planned for August 19 and 20.
Dr. Janet M. Eaton, International Trade Critic with the Green Party
of Canada, who spoke about the SPP at the annual meeting of the Green
Party of the United States in Reading, Pennsylvania, in July, said:
"The SPP, also called 'NAFTA-Plus' within a 'security trumps all'
framework, is the next big step in moving from a free trade agreement
to a customs union and some suggest common market and eventually a
union like the European Union."
"But we should heed the words of the Secretary General of the
European Greens, Juan Behrand, who said that the process for North
American integration does not resemble the democratic and consultative
European Union model."
Eaton said that the so-called North American Partnership is fraught
with profound implications for sovereignty and Constitutional and
"The Bush, Harper, and Calderón administrations are taking their
countries down a dark road to a future where decisions are made in
virtual secrecy by undemocratic supranational organizations such as
the North American Competitiveness Council. This group of powerful
corporate leaders represents the large transnational companies that
stand to profit from the SPP's globalist economy, an economic model
which has been largely recognized as a failure when it comes to
protecting working people and the environment," said Dr. Julia
Willebrand, co-chair of the US Green Party's International Committee
and co-president of the Federation of Green Parties of the Americas.
Greens dispute claims by NAFTA proponents that NAFTA has proved
successful and that the SPP is the logical and necessary next step.
Green Parties have called for withdrawal from and renegotiation of
NAFTA, and for enactment of 'fair trade' policies where economic,
social and ecological justice take precedence over corporate profit
and privilege and the short term economic demands of investors.
"Security and Prosperity are attractive goals. The use of these
words disguises that the Harper-Bush agenda undermines true security
by imperiling global eco-systems, revving climate change into
over-drive, and ignoring the needs to protect true peace and
prosperity through flourishing, open democratic process. The 'Security
and Prosperity Partnership' scheme deserves widespread public exposure
and opposition," said Elizabeth May.
Greens warn of numerous dangers if SPP remains unchallenged, including:
Super-corridors lined with oil, gas, and water pipelines, which will
carve up arable land, damage biodiversity across North America, and
increase fossil fuel consumption and emission of greenhouse gases.
Military and security integration of the US, Canada, and Mexico, with
an expansion of surveillance over private citizens and forced forced
subordination of Canada and Mexico to imperial US military goals.
Privatization and unconstrained exploitation of natural resources for
the benefit of US-based corporations, e.g., Mexico's state-owned oil
industry and Canadian watersheds.
Erosion of food safety standards.
Empowerment of the North American Competitiveness Council (NACC),
which gives corporate leaders access to government information and
resources while denying the latter to civil society leaders.
