Congress Passes Job-Killing Trade Package

Stop the Korea FTA!Despite overwhelming opposition by a wide range of labor, environmental, family farm, consumer, faith and human rights organizations in the United States and abroad, Congress passed the KoreaPanama and Colombia Free Trade Agreements on October 12 — and the pacts were quietly signed by President Obama on October 21.

Thank you to everyone who made calls, sent emails, attended rallies, phonebanked and generally worked their butts off to try to stop these NAFTA-style pacts.  The one silver lining is that a greater percentage of Congressional Democrats opposed these FTAs than opposed the Peru FTA, NAFTA, the WTO, China PNTR — or any negative bill offered up by President Obama.
