No NAFTA with Korea!

The Korea Free Trade Agreement - the largest trade deal of its type since NAFTA - could be introduced in Congress literally any week now unless there is a major blow back of opposition. We need your help to defeat this awful trade pact, before it's too late. Without our strong opposition, the Korea NAFTA we have derailed for all these years will be implemented by Congress. At stake is not only the loss of many more American jobs and new powers for corporations to attack the vital financial, environmental and health policies on which people rely both in the United States and South Korea. If we do not stop the corporate campaign to revive the devastating trade pacts that have already cost us so much, we will suffer the damage of a slew of these agreements being implemented imminently.

Fact Sheet on Korea Free Trade Agreement


  1. Call your representative to get a “no” vote commitment & report back: it is as easy as calling the Capitol Switchboard at 202-225-3121 and giving the operator your zip code to be connected to your Representative.

  2. Spread the word to encourage others to take action.

  3. Write a letter-to-the-editor or guest editorial using the Citizen's Trade Campaign's web-based tool. Follow the simple instructions and select which talking points to include from the right hand column (you may have to scroll down to view them all). 

  4. Place an announcement in your organization's newsletter. 

  5. Get your organization to pass a resolution against the NAFTA with Korea.

  6. Tell your story about how unfair trade deals have affected you!
