Free Trade In Death by A//Political
One hundred seventy nine nations united in a policy
Based upon the profits of exploiting the majority
The means of production controlled by the rich
The trade industry subjugated as their wish
The Internation Monetary Fund was formed shortly before the end
Of the first world war as a plan for world development in the post-war era.
It has been the primary source of funding "development projects"
In the unindustrialized nations of the third world.
The main institution of the IMF is the World Bank
Which then forces exploitative economic standards as a condition for membership.
World band projects dealers in death
Re-adjust the third world to suit the wealthiest
World bank programs to indoctrinate the masses
One bank, one profit, shove it up your arses
The North American Free Trade Agreement creates a "free trade zone"
Within Mexico, the United States and Canada.
Corporations use this to force down wages in the US and Canada
By threatening to and in many cases actually moving production to Mexico
Where they abuse minimal environmental standards and fair labor laws
Free trade policy loosened restrictions
Loosing the belt of the rich's convictions
Free trade on livelihoods free reign on the environment
Destitution for the poor everything for the rich
The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade
Is a treaty which expands the principals of NAFTA to a worldwide economy.
In addition to creating a world free trade zone
GATT creates a World Trade Organization which must approve all possible restrictions on trade.
Therefore, all major decision concerning environmental and labor issues
Are made by a limited corporate body
If these are all "agreements," who agreed!
