10,000 Protesters Expected at North America Summit

Bush to attend meeting critics view as stepping stone to continental union

By Jerome R. Corsi

Protesters believe as many as 10,000 people could assemble in Quebec to demonstrate against the third summit meeting of the Security and Prosperity Partnership, the trilateral group some critics see as a stepping stone to a “North America Community.”

Canadian state and national police are preparing for a possible violent confrontation when President Bush joins Mexican President Felipe Calderon and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper Aug. 20, 21 in Montebello, Québec, at the Fairmont Le Château Montebello resort.

Stuart Trew, a spokesman for the Council of Canadians, said his group plans to hold a public forum in Ottawa Sunday, Aug. 19, at about 4:00 p.m., bringing together speakers from the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

“We are then going to encourage people to head to Montebello on Monday and get as close they can to the Fairmont resort where the SPP meeting is going to be held, so they can protest at the site of the summit,” he said.

Trew said some of the same groups that brought 15,000 people to Ottawa to protest President Bush’s Nov. 30, 2004, meeting with then-Prime Minister Paul Martin are organizing the demonstration against the SPP summit. CBC News estimated the number of protestors in 2004 at closer to 5,000.

Frederic Castonguay, the town general manager of Papineauville, Quebec, told WND in a telephone interview that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Sûreté du Québec will set up operations in a town community facility that adjoins a local high school.

“Papineauville is located about six kilometers from the Montebello resort where the summit meeting will be held,” Castonguay told WND, “and the Canadian national and state police have evidently decided that our town facility will be their command center.”

Castonguay suggested the Canadian police may try to maintain a 25-kilometer protest-free zone around the Montebello summit meeting site.

Castonguay affirmed to WND that a deposit to lease the facility to the Council of Canadians the day before the SPP summit meeting had to be returned at the insistence of the Canadian police, but he denied a report in the Canadian press that the U.S. Army would be part of the security detail at the Papineauville community center facility.

“That’s a game the Canadian press likes to play,” Castonguay told WND. “The RCMP said U.S. and Mexican security forces would be involved, but they did not specifically mention the U.S. Army.”

The PGA Bloc Montreal has organized a mock website designed to model Canada’s SPP governmental website. The group is calling for Aug. 20 at 3 p.m. to be a “Day of Action” organized against the SPP.

The PGA Bloc Montreal is a Canadian group affiliated with the Peoples’ Global Action, a worldwide group organized to protest globalism and war.

“We are calling for a convergence on Montebello, or as close to Montebello as possible, on the 20th, in the afternoon,” a PGA Bloc Montreal spokesman explained to WND in an e-mail. “People are invited to come as close as possible to Montebello to demonstrate against the SPP and its promoters. Mass transportation will be organized from Montreal, but we are not planning a peace march.”

“If they will not let us demonstrate peacefully in Montebello, as we have the full right to do,” the PGA Bloc Montreal spokesman continued, “it is imaginable that some outraged people would want to disrupt the summit by various means.”

WND previously reported a large number of Canadian activist groups are expected to join the protests.

The meeting, closed to the press, is expected to include the 30 international business leaders who comprise the SPP North American Competitiveness Council.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met July 6 in Washington with Canadian Foreign Minister Peter MacKay and Mexican Foreign Minister Patricia Espinosa to prepare for the Quebec summit.

The July meeting followed an earlier Feb. 24 meeting of the three ministers in Washington to set the stage for the summit.

Since its creation in February 1998, http://uuhome.de/global/english/pga01.html the Peoples’ Global Action has held large street protests around the world in opposition to meetings held by various international organizations, including the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization and the G-8.

This North American Union is shaking up the old left/right paradigm. For example, the People's Global Action, a leftist protest group, is against it, while LaRaza for example, is for it. On the right, we have corporate and 'free-trade' interests for it, while those of us who believe in national sovereignty and border enforcement are against.

I would encourage all who post to this thread to keep this in mind. This isn't your typical lib vs. conservative issue.

OUR MILITARY DID NOT DIE FOR AMNESTY
or THE NORTH AMERICAN UNION!



The Council on Foreign Relations is pushing for a
North American Union.


The standard of living is sinking for America's shrinking middle class and increasing lower class, exactly what the CFR wants to happen. This way, America and Canada can equalize its economy and standards with Mexico, a forced socialism upon Americans and the necessary preparation for erasure of our national sovereignty.

Why do we keep having these silly “summits”? They impose a staggering cost in police overtime, vandalism, businesses that have to close down for security reasons, etc. What exactly is it that the participants can’t say to each other via videoconference, or in small unpublicized meetings between a handful of them?

While the CFR has pushed globalism since its formation, there are those that insist that membership in this POS organization is part of a conservative portfolio, or does not detract from one’s conservatism.

Conditioning is what cannot be accomplished by video conference.

They want you to know its comming they want you to get "used" to the idea. The video conferences occur, small meetings that really hammer out the details, this large meeting is strictly for public consumption, no matter how much they deny it.

I heard Roger Hedgecock specifically bring up the NAU like 3 weeks ago on Rush. He talked about it for a segment. Glenn Beck and Lou Dobbs also know about it.

Other than that, nothing. Seems like it’s right up Savage’s alley, though.

Exactly right. This is an issue all US citizens need to wake up to.

They don't wake up because they are too emeshed in party politics.

The elites of both of those parties have the same agenda, just different paths to get there.

One of these days, people are going to wake up in the morning to a country that is no longer the USA.

I hope they can handle it. If they failed to pay attention and do all they could to stop it, they will be as responsible as the people behind it.

Awareness is most important.

This North American Union is shaking up the old left/right paradigm.

This division is the Corporatists and Oligarchs vs. the Communalists and Individualists, or in medieval terms the Landed Gentry vs. the Serfs. 'Those-That-Have' intend to erect road-blocks to prevent 'Those-Of-Us-That-Don't-Have' from acquiring the means to rise above the Stations in Life we were born to -- both legally and extra-legally.

Strange Bed-Fellows indeed. Mexico is the perfected paradigm of that society; the Haves in total control of the Have-Nots, with a very small Middle Class.

This boldness of the globalists is a relatively new development.

This NAU Globalist boldness is also occurring along with the new boldness from Putin's Russia. In the case of Russia, we have all learned that the bear was just hibernating and getting lean and mean. So the charade of 'Glastnost' is no longer viable. Perhaps the generality can be applied to the NAU Globalists. Many Americans have recently learned from the amnesty legislation that there really is a globalist or extra-national push for the NAU. So the charade of 'Comprehensive Immigration Reform' is no longer viable.

As long as they are on our side about this, I don’t care what they think about other issues. That’s probably the reason why I don’t judge people by their religion, wealth, skin color or belief in fighting foreign wars. If you are doing your best to follow the 10 Commandments and will fight at your own borders, you’re basically a decent person in my mind.

Heck, I’ve even known some Dems and Vegans that I’d split a beer with.

It's a matter of perspective.

The loonie left, the nihils and the anarchists up north object because their giant neighbor to the south is leading the charge. In their view nothing led by Washington and the US CEOs can be good.

In this case they are right.

I’m new to this NAU thing and am still gathering info.

If this is a typical globalist plan, I expect that it entails harmonizing laws and regulations via regional management councils.

It makes sense for globlists to harmonize laws so they need not wade through dozens of laws and regulations amongst different countries to sell their goods. It’s easier to bribe one official than dozens.

The down side for the citizen is the creation of these regional councils that will write rules, laws and regulations. These councils are unelected, thus stripping away the right of people to vote via the bllot box for their representatives who write these laws.

I see it as little more than a variation of the unelected communist soviets who ruled over the villages, towns, cities and regions in the old soviet union.

In short, this is another dictatorship that the elite snobs are trying to impose over the citizenry.

We already have enough grief with unaccountable federal bureaucrats illegaly writing law in this country. (See OSHA’s recent gambit at gun control, brought about by a few bureaucrats illegally writing law.) The NAU bureaucracy will add another layer of trouble onto our lives. And how does the citizenry remove an unelected bureaucracy engaged in theft, chicanery and capricious conduct?

No good can come from this.

Because they know if we all heard their plans we would not like it...well except for those that have the plans in front of their face and would still pretend it ain't so.

One of their big playahs is Richard Lugar, his name keeps coming up in the small amount of news we get about this. That must be why so much Homeland Security bucks are going to Indiana. I ask, why?

I also wonder how many of the members of this little cabal, get odd amounts of Homeland Security bucks to their state.

Of course we can never really know, or see, what those funds are being used for.

The executive office (Bush, Rice, Chertoff etc) will implement it by ‘institutionalizing’ the regulations via the executive branch. In other words, through executive order (by passing congress and the people) and management the federal offices, like the Department of Transporation for example, will implement the decisions made at these conferences because they are ordered to do so by their bosses. It doesn’t hurt that the hiring managers hire people who have been trained (or paid) by American University, UN organizations like ECLAC or UNEP, or some of these participating transnational corporations to be consumate globalists.
