Oppose Korea, Colombia and Panama NAFTA-style Trade Deals
If Congress approves an unfair Korea trade deal, it will embolden the push to pass the Colombia and Panama deals soon after – despite Colombia continuing to lead the world in violence against unionists (more unionists murdered than the rest of the world combined) and that Panama remains a tax haven allowing corporations and the extremely wealthy to avoid their paying their fair share to support our country in tight budget time.
Not only will these unfair deals send good jobs offshore, but they will also limit financial regulation in ways that undermine the crucial efforts to stop the risky conduct of the financial firms that wrecked the global economy.
These pacts will also allow corporations to directly challenge before foreign tribunals our democratically-decided environmental, public heath, food and product safety, and other common sense public interest policies.
Take action. Tell your representative you oppose the Korea, Colombia and Panama NAFTA-style trade deals.
