Thousands of delegates – as well as the largest security operation in Canadian history – are expected at the ‘Summit of the Americas’ in Quebec City from 20 to 22 April. The Summit will bring together all 34 leaders from the hemisphere – excluding Cuba. It will discuss integration, migration, security, terrorism, democracy and human rights, as well as the proposed Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA). Designed as a pre-packaged media spectacle of gala dinners, cocktail parties and photo opportunities for the leaders, it is providing another focus for the anti-globalization movement as well.
