This presentation outlines how the World Trade Organization, NAFTA, and similar trade agreements are helping corporate interests roll back public animal and environmental legislation, violate human rights, and globalize the ecologically destructive and inhumane industrial practices.

From this presentation, you'll learn how free trade agreements:

- Exacerbate climate change.
- Globalize factory farming.
- Increase global consumption of animal products
- Contribute to deforestation.
- Promote illegal trafficking in exotic wildlife
- Undermine campaigns to protect baby seals and other fur-bearing animals.
- Compromise the safety of our food supply.
- Destroy indigenous and family farm communities.
- Allow toxic chemicals to enter our environment.
- Encourage repression and human rights violations.
- Endanger dolphins and sea turtles.
- Undermine local autonomy.
- And more...

But along with these grim facts you'll also find humor, stories of inspiring actions, and ideas about what you do to oppose these destructive trade agreements!
