'저는 그들의 땅을 지키기 위하여 싸웠던 인디안들의 이야기를 기억합니다. 백인들이 그들의 신성한 숲에 도로를 만들기 위하여 나무들을 잘랐습니다. 매일밤 인디안들이 나가서 백인들이 만든 그 길을 해체하면 그 다음 날 백인들이 와서 도로를 다시 짓곤 했습니다. 한동안 그 것이 반복되었습니다. 그러던 어느날, 숲에서 가장 큰 나무가 백인들이 일할 동안 그들 머리 위로 떨어져 말과 마차들을 파괴하고 그들 중 몇몇을 죽였습니다. 그러자 백인들은 떠났고 결코 다시 오지 않았습니다….' (브루스 개그논)

Text Fwd: Obama wants NAFTA with South Korea?!?!

ACTION ALERT!

Obama wants the South Korea Free Trade Agreement to pass after fall elections.

Dear fair trade allies,

Three years ago today, the Bush administration signed a free trade agreement with South Korea.

Today, it still has not been ratified by Congress, because the American people know it's a terrible idea.

Last weekend, President Obama announced he wants to bring it to Congress for a vote.

WE MUST ACT NOW. Please call BOTH Senators Collins and Snowe today and let them know that another NAFTA deal spells disaster.

COLLINS: (207) 945-0417
SNOWE: 1-800-432-1599

Leave a message for the Senators that they must OPPOSE the South Korea Free Trade Agreement, and that they should instead support FAIR trade by co-sponsoring The TRADE Act.


The Chamber of Commerce launched a $100 million lobbying "Campaign for Free Enterprise" to maintain the free trade NAFTA status quo. They are pushing to pass these pending FTAs. Are we going to let them buy our country's future?

Call Senators Collins and Snowe today and ask them to come out AGAINST the South Korea Free Trade Agreement. Maine has suffered too much under this trade model, and we know expanding it to South Korea won't benefit Korean workers or farmers either. This trade deal is for the multi-national corporations.

THANK YOU for taking action for fair trade. We have to be loud and clear, now, that this is unacceptable.
