Rally to oppose Korea-US Free Trade Agreement
This just in from the Washington State Labor CounciL:
We Demand a New FAIR TRADE Model, or it's NO to the KOREA-US Pact
This week, trade negotiators from the United States and South Korea will hold the third round of negotiations for the Korea-US (KORUS) Free Trade Agreement. By all indications, the KORUS FTA will be little more than a carbon copy of past trade agreements, such as NAFTA, that mean weak protections for workers' rights and the environment, undermining of public services and strong protections for multinational corporate investment and profits.
We do not have a seat at the negotiating table, so we must make our voices heard from the streets!
