BACKGROUND:

**The Security and Prosperity Partnership is an agreement signed
between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico in 2005.

**The Security and Prosperity Partnership will function through
hundreds of changes in the areas of security and border laws, refugee
and immigration laws, migrant and temporary worker programs, and trade
and energy resource exploitation. This includes policies already in
effect such as the expansion of temporary worker programs to exploit
low paid labour, the arming of Canadian border agents in August 2007,
the co-ordination of no-fly lists and the use of biometrics. These
changes will increase the displacement of our Indigenous sisters and
brothers across North America, increase the profiling and
criminalizing that immigrants and refugees experience, worsen the
conditions of immigrant, migrant and non-status workers and make the
borders increasingly difficult to cross for the original peoples of
these lands and those searching for a dignified existence.

**In brief, the "Security and Prosperity Partnership" (SPP) combines
the destructive neo-liberal policies of the North American Free Trade
Agreement (NAFTA) with the fear and paranoia of post 9-11 "Homeland
Security" policies. The SPP is firmly rooted within a colonial and
capitalist framework.

**Because the SPP announces itself as a "dialogue based on shared
values," it is secretive process, subject to no formal public scrutiny
or open debate.

**The SPP reinforces the idea of "Fortress North America", whereby the
rich and privileged live in gated communities and gentrified cities,
protected by police and security, with easy movement for capital
between borders; for the rest, there's border fences, detention
centers, prisons, surveillance, and increased precarity.

**Indigenous and migrant communities have entire histories of
colonialism and resistance that have shown the dangers of such
agreements between governments and companies -- agreements which have
pushed them off our lands, forced them into poverty, forced them to
migrate and yet controlled their movement. The powers behind the SPP's
of today were the East India Company, the Hudson Bay Company and the
Encomenderos of the past. They are the same powers that created the
Chinese Head Tax and NAFTA.

**Join us in a series of community assemblies to discuss the ways in
which the SPP may affect you, your family members and friends and how
we can work together to defend our rights against the agenda of
corporate greed.

GET INVOLVED! MOBILIZE AGAINST THE SPP SUMMIT IN MONTEBELLO!

This August, protests are being organized by anti-capitalist social
justice activists in Ontario and Quebec, within the framework of the
People's Global Action (PGA) Network. With organizing hubs in Ottawa
and Montreal, on either end of Montebello on the Highway 148, we are
preparing to resist the upcoming SPP meeting.

There will be activities from August 19-21, with a call for a
convergence on Montebello (or as close as possible to Montebello) on
3pm on MONDAY, AUGUST 20. An anti-capitalist camp will be set up in
the Montebello region in early August, as a convergence space for
activists who want to gather early to plan popular and actions.
