Smelling the trilateral rat

By Brenda Norrell

When you smell a rat, just follow the money.

The new trilateral partnership, Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, is now being protested by First Nations and others in Canada.
Under the guise of the war on terrorism, with the old stand-in of the fear of bird flu, the three amigos, leaders of the U.S., Mexico and Canada, want to tighten the border for people, while paving the way for certain corporations.
"The goal of this secret plan is to dissolve the three sovereign nations of United States, Canada and Mexico into a North American Union by 2010. All our resources: land, water, agricultural, also health and environment issues, will be not be controlled the peoples of these three sovereign countries but by the new un-elected government of the North American Union," said one First Nations warrior.
Mohawks released a statement of travel restrictions from First Nations protecting their territories from the conquest of the puppet leaders of corporations.
"In Unity with People upon Earth against Globalization, North American Free Trade Agreement and meeting between puppet leaders of the corporations United States, Canada and Mexico at Chateau Montebello on twentieth day said August;
"In response to corporations State Of New York , United States Bureau Of Indian Affairs and Catskill Development LLC, attempts to interfere with Ancient governmental structure of Kanienkehaka and unauthorized negotiations, to deprive of Ancestral Land;
"In remembrance of our past struggles and in unity with continued struggle of all original People upon the Earth at Chiapas, Oaxaca, Wayúu People, Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, Kanenhstaton and others against the Vatican's terrorists."
"Rotiskenrakéhte shall exercise and maintain explicit reservation of Right, have Authority to use all force necessary, with necessary means to maintain the Peace and stop the destruction of life on Earth, by this Navigation And Travel Restriction to vessels of any nation or corporation engaging in commerce, commercial intercourse with corporate United States or Canada."
Passport requirements, border security and territorial disputes in the Arctic were among issues raised by Canada during the meeting with Bush.

Meanwhile, in the selection process of representatives of the tri-lateral partnership, Canada, Mexico and the United States all employed different methods. Canada and Mexico both selected individuals as members of their respective sections of the NACC, while the United States selected companies (15, with only 10 participating in trilateral meetings).
