Earlier this month, President Bush sent his NAFTA expansion to Colombia to Congress over the objections of Speaker Pelosi and Congressional Democrats. Speaker Pelosi reasserted congressional authority over the bill by removing the Fast Track treatment of the bill.
The Colombia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) replicates almost exactly all of the harmful provisions we fought so hard in our opposition to the Peru FTA last fall. And now we have a direct link between Colombia’s murderous right-wing paramilitaries and the government. Colombia’s well-known horrific record of unionist murders - and its lesser known, but equally hideous, record of discrimination and outright violence against Afro-Colombians - makes this FTA a major candidate for defeat. Please use the form below to send an email to your member of Congress urging him or her to vote no on the Colombia FTA!
