Democracy Means Accountability: Bird-Dog for Fair Trade!
With less than a month to go before the election on November 4th and the whole nation riveted by global economic chaos, there's no better time to discover where your federal candidates stand on globalization and fair trade policies. The momentum is on our side and support is growing for an end to the failed NAFTA/WTO model that has resulted in global financial instability, lost jobs, stagnant wages, a flood of unsafe imports, human rights abuses and harm to the environment.
Bird-dogging is an exciting way to make a huge impact. The ability to raise your issues in public so that your officials must deal with them, on-the-record, is the core of democratic action and accountability. Polls are showing that globalization and trade issues are of widespread interest to voters, so bird-dogging on the issue provides a public service, letting everyone know clearly where the candidates stand.
