NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, signed in 1994 by the governments of the USA, Canada and Mexico, was supposed to have been a boon to consumers, boosted employment and strengthened economies north and south of the border. Reality has been very different. Local laws have been overturned in favor of corporations not even based in the same country. Court decisions have been vacated by NAFTA tribunals that are completely unaccountable to the citizenry. In Mexico thousands of farmers have been forced out of their livelihood when U.S. agricultural conglomerates dumped cheap corn and hogs on the market.
