Taking Catholic Rural Life Conference comes out against NAFTA DES MOINES, Iowa (CNS) -- The National Catholic Rural Life Conference has come out against the proposed North American Free Trade Agree- ment, saying that the NAFTA side agreements negotiated by the United States, Canada and Mexico "do not meet the justice criteria of Catholic social teaching." "The agreement should re- flect a social charter between nations that ensures the dig- nity of workers and the protec- tion of the environment," rural life conference executive direc- tor Joseph K. Fitzgerald said in a statement. "It doesn't have to be this way," he said. "A better agree- ment needs to be negotiated." The Sept. 17 announcement by the rural life conference fol- lowed by one day NAFTA oppo- sition by its Heartland Region, whose representatives come from the 21 dioceses of Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. NAFTA as currently drafted, a Heartland Region statement said, "fails to make a preferen- tial option for the poor, under- mines democratic participa- tion, lacks adequate environmental safeguards, fails to protect the rights of workers and will lead to the erosion in the standard of liv- ing for most people in North America." Additionally, the statement said, "it directly threatens the survival of family farmers in all three countries," and will make "the many serious human rights violations occur- ring in North America ... more common." Catholic groups opposing NAFTA include the Maryknoll order; Network; the human rights committee of the Arch- diocese of St. Louis; and the peace and justice committee of the Diocese of Lexington, Ky.
