This video reveals the alarming environmental and human toll of NAFTA, the free trade agreement of the Americas, initiated by the U.S. government, on the border-town, Matamoros, Mexico. Through NAFTA, U.S. companies are encouraged to build factories in border-towns like Matamoros, escaping tough pollution control laws, labor standards, and taxes that pay for social and environmental needs.

The people of Matamoros, attracted by the promise of employment, suffer low wages, inadequate housing, poor sanitation and disease, revealing the true human face of globalization.
