RCMP, U.S. Army block public forum on the Security and Prosperity Partnership

This is outrageous! RCMP, U.S. Army block public forum on the Security and Prosperity Partnership

The Council of Canadians has been advised that they can not rent a community hall 6 kilometres from the site (Montebello, Quebec) of the upcoming meeting between George Bush, Stephen Harper, and Filipe Caldaron (Mexican President). The Council had rented the hall to hold a public forum and have been advised that they are being refused on instruction of the RCMP, the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), and the U.S. Army.

Bush, Harper, and Calderon are apparently discussing something so secret that they need a 25 kilometre buffer from the peasants who would attend such a public forum in a community hall.

Why isn't the mainstream media all over this? Has our democracy been so usurped by the multi-national corporate agenda and their political puppets that such secrecy and elitism is normal and acceptable behaviour?

What are these men deciding on our behalf that requires this kind of expense of taxpayers money? Security perimeters - security from whom? What are they afraid of? Are they afraid of writers, academics, students, working people, average citizens?

Some democracy - when the people who get elected as Prime Ministers and Presidents are only accessible to the rich, the powerful, and the captains of industry.

Now we know why they call it the "Security and Prosperity Partnership". Security and Prosperity for them. The rest of the citizens can just step back, and shut up!

Harper continues to push the corporate agenda while the interests of ordinary citizens seem to be of little importance. Along with broken election promises related to equalization, to cozy meetings with Bush, Harper has fooled many voters but hopefully not next time.

Whooee! Dang right, it's outrageous. What gets me is that hardly anyone knows diddly-squat about the SPP or even that it is happening. I put up a simple challenge on my boog. I'm lookin' fer other Canajun boogers to do some pollin' out in meatspace. Nuthin' scientific. Just to gather some collective knowledge wrt public awareness.

I'd be tickled pink if you'd consider participatin'.
