On Saturday, October 29 at 12:30 PM, Occupy Philly will march from 15th and Market to Temple University where William Jefferson Clinton will be speaking on behalf of Mayor Nutter’s re-election. They will be standing up for all the American workers who have lost their jobs as a result of The North American Free Trade Agreement, which was signed by then-President Clinton. H Ross Perot, then a wild card third party candidate, warned that if NAFTA was signed there would be ‘a giant sucking sound’ where American jobs used to be and we all laughed. But who’s laughing now?
