Pillage by Arbitration

November 29, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Join us to talk with grassroots movements in Colombia and Guatemala about their struggles and the dangers and injustices of Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) enshrined in the Canada Colombia Free Trade Agreement and thousands of other international investment agreements worldwide. We will discuss how they threaten their territories, water and sovereignty, as well as what we can do to support their movements and take greater action at home.
