Many NAFTA promises never came true after twenty years. The US and Mexican people are working for less money, fewer jobs, manufacturing that’s moved to Asia, and food control by multi-national agricultural corporations. Across North America, small towns, rural economies, and families have been devastated by NAFTA. The resulting immigration issues, increases in drug cartels and crime, and greater poverty in both countries should sound an alarm to governments that NAFTA isn’t working. Will the governments respond? The Facebook picture is of 65,000 people protesting the Trans Pacific Partnership in Mexico City. To my knowledge, the protest was not covered in the US.
