The rosy picture of Liberals hugging Conservatives in the House of Commons regarding the "signing" of CETA should be ringing alarm bells for Canadians. It's a publicity stunt as the reality is this agreement is far from becoming reality. The European Union requires ratification from all 28 members at the assembly level. That is extremely unlikely and will remain so. German and Austrian courts have ruled opt-out provision must be included for them. Belgium will decide if the entire deal is constitutional to sign. Issues remain for Poland, Greece, Romania and Hungary. Never mind the issue of Brexit. The ISDS provision has been spun into ICS, Investor Court Settlement. Why the national courts of Canada and Europe are not good enough has not been adequately answered. Except that corporations seek to be above the citizens and internal laws of nations. On top of all this is a constitutional challenge filed in Canada on the entire agreement. Done deal? Hardly.

November 5th approaches and once again the Million Mask March will be happening in more than 750 locations world wide. This year, the first annual internet radio marathon will cover the day of celebration, remembrance, activism and unity on both sides of the Atlantic. Ten hours of live coverage will stream globally. Never before have I been involved in an effort like this planning live reports, guests, recorded statements, music of the movement, memories, tributes and commentary from those within and formerly Anonymous.

Peoples Radi0 United, t0pg3arlive of AnonUK Radio, Rebelution Radio and The View Up Here will combine to present global coverage.
