FTAA Protests, Quebec City, April 19-22, 2001
Representatives from the government of all nations in North and South America, with the exception of Cuba, met in Quebec City, April 19-22, 2001. The purpose of this summit was to work on developing a NAFTA-like free trade agreement that would span all of the Americas. Around 100,000 activists showed up to protest against the FTAA. The City of Quebec built a large wall to keep the protesters away from the part of the city where the diplomats were meeting. The wall was referred to as the "Wall of Shame" by many Quebec residents.
Doreen and I were there and this album contains some of the pictures that we took.
