Oman Free Trade Agreement passes above our protests
Well, we protested outside Norm Dicks' office, shouting slogans, waving signs, and generally raising hell in downtown Tacoma. Sadly, Norm Dicks, Adam Smith, and Brian Baird all voted for the thing, and it passed.
Unfortunately, it's very difficult to get into the news with something like this. It seems to me that supporting Free Trade is about as easy for politicians to do nowadays as supporting the aggressive military policies of Israel, and both have real problems when it comes to the effects of these policies on ordinary working people.
If you've been watching coverage of the invasion of Lebanon on CNN, you probably don't have any idea what I'm talking about, but trust me, there's a whole big ugly can of worms in there that Anderson Cooper simply will not tell you about.
Special thanks to all our volunteers, and to my wife for helping make those killer signs. We'll see you at the next event!
