The Party for the Amazon needs your help!

Folks, our venue for the Party for the Amazon! is not working out, so we are in danger of not being able to put it on! Please help us find a hall suitable to make this event happen. We need a place that can seat one to two hundred people at long tables, plus room for a band and tables to display literature and advertise Fair Trade products. If you or anyone you know can help us put this thing together, please let us know ASAP by contacting tahomaactivist@yahoo.com or todd@americasolidarity.org - you'll be glad you helped make this event possible!

By the way, for those of you who don't know about the Party for the Amazon!, it's an event designed to educate the public about what Free Trade is and how it will devastate the economy of Peru and threaten the ecosystem of the Amazon there, if the Peru FTA passes through Congress. We plan to have a petition there for folks to sign that tells Congress in no uncertain terms that we oppose this deal.

The vote comes up in October, so making this event happen is of paramount importance. Last time one of these votes came up, five Democratic legislators voted for it, despite Washington voters opposing free trade policies by large margins. Tell your members of Congress that you want them to vote against the Peru Free Trade Agreement. Call the Capital Switchboard at: 1-888-355-3588
