CETA Actions on October 13 and 15, 2011

CETA is a new trade agreement being negotiated on the quiet between the Canadian government and the European Economic Union. It is like NAFTA on steroids. It would allow huge European and American corporations to compete in our municipalities for local jobs, infrastructure, real estate, and markets for their goods. Health care, education, agriculture, construction, the environment, (and more) would all be adversely affected.

Thursday, Oct.13, 7:00 p.m.

East Village Cafe, 785 Dundas Street

Organizational meeting (30 min.) followed by split into two groups:

East Village Cafe, 785 Dundas Street

Educate and brain storm creative actions in response to the threat of CETA.

East Village Arts Co-op, 757 Dundas Street

Build a giant blue octopus named the “CETApus”.

Saturday, Oct. 15, 10:00 a.m.,

street theatre intervention at Covent Garden Market

The “CETApus” is meant to draw attention to the threat of CETA in solidarity with the Occupy Ontario movement. All those not driving to Windsor or Toronto are asked to gather around the “CETApus” this Saturday morning.
