U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement

On November 22, 2006, the Bush administration signed the Colombia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) despite major concerns in both Colombia and the United States over murder of labor union leaders and concerns that the agricultural provisions in the agreement could increase rural poverty and lead to an increase in drug trafficking and violence.

On April 6, 2011, the Obama administration, which had pledged to fix our unfair trade policy and renegotiate NAFTA, announced it would push Congress to consider the NAFTA-style trade pact with Colombia. Legislation for the deal was sent to Congress on October 3, 2011.

Learn more about it and take action to prevent another NAFTA-style trade deal from being passed.
