“2 Revolución: Free Trade, Mexico and North America” in Toronto; Thursday, June 21 at 7pm.
Featuring a panel discussion with the director and film participants after the screening.
The standard story about NAFTA is that it took jobs from Canadian and American workers and sent them to Mexico. But free trade’s impact on Mexico has proved to be even worse for Mexican workers, their families, and their communities. In the centenary of the Mexican Revolution, we traveled to Mexico to speak with community leaders, factory workers, educators, union activists, and advocates for migrant justice to explore how Mexico has been affected by neoliberal policies and economics, and to examine the grassroots social movements that seek to promote social justice across borders.
