Reframing ‘protectionism’

It’s not about ‘free trade’ vs. ‘protectionism’:

The only question is, do you want to protect people, animals, jobs, workers’ rights, ecosystems, local and national independence, fairness OR do you want to protect the rights of multinational corporations, ‘the free market’, the profit motive…

Do you want to protect the local, globally: or do you want to protect the rich and powerful who hide behind the excuse of ‘free trade’?
