Occupy Economics China Workshop

Saturday, October 12, 2013 - 12:00pm - 3:00pm


Steelworkers Hall
25 Cecil Street

After an introduction showing facilitators Dix Sandbeck's photos from China in the 1980s and 90s, including some taken during a visit in late May 1989 to the student movement occupation of Tiananmen Square, the workshop will debate China’s lack of democracy and worker's rights, and why we should say no to the investor protection FIPA treaty with China. On the contrary, we need fair trade rules that stop imports of products from companies that operate under exploitative and dehumanizing conditions.

Brenda Sayers, a representative of Hupacasath First Nation (Vancouver Island), will speak at a rally on Parliament Hill and at events across Ontario and Quebec to gather support for a First Nations legal challenge to the Canada-China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA), which has been signed but not yet ratified by the federal government. The Hupacasath case, which was heard in federal court June 5-7, argues the federal government is required to consult First Nations before ratifying treaties like the FIPA.

The FIPA became controversial as soon as it was announced last fall. It hasn't been ratified yet, and that probably has something to do with the Hupacasath legal case.
