Yael and Fred Published in the PanAm Post on Cheaper Meat and Cars

Today the PanAm Post published Advocate Yael Ossowski and Director Fred Roeder on the Canadian government’s recently signed free trade agreement with the European Union.

And while managed trade deals with politicians at the negotiating table aren’t anyone’s idea of a great time, it is beyond doubt that the benefits for consumers worldwide will come to fruition in lower taxes, lower prices, and more competition in the world market.

Let us celebrate this agreement but also make certain that we push for further reductions of trade barriers around the world, so the positive impact of fruitful exchanges can make everyone, not just in Canada and the European Union, richer and better off.

Read the rest here.

Advocate Sara Labib Writes About Egypt in The Oslo Times

Young Voices Advocate Sara Labib has been published by The Oslo Times. In her op-ed Sara writes about Egypt’s long way to become a liberal democracy:

For a liberal democracy to materialize in Egypt, the rejection of totalitarian ideology and authoritarian systems of government is required. Such a rejection must happen in society before it can reach those in power. However, with the rise of extreme nationalism and the people’s readiness to approve oppression as long as it is targeted at their political opponents, such a rejection is far from likely. While the denunciation of anti-democratic institutions is necessary, it is not sufficient to fuel the emergence of a rights respecting government. An alternative to the current political landscape is also necessary. Even if we concede that the fall of the Brotherhood’s popularity equals a setback for Islamism as an ideology, it still does not mean there is a better ideology ready to take its place.
