Stop the Oman and Peru Trade Agreements


The Bush Administration & big business is once again pushing for more NAFTA style trade agreements. This time they are trying to pass the Oman trade agreement & the Peru trade agreement. These will result in outsourced jobs & more sweatshops; an attack on environmental standards and democracy; and further privatization.

Luckily we can defeat these bad deals. If we raise enough pressure Congress will not bring these agreements up for a vote in an election year. WE NEED YOU TO CALL SENATORS SNOWE & COLLINS TODAY TO URGE THEM TO VOTE NO on the Oman and the Peru free trade agreements.

TAKE ACTION: Please call Senator Snowe & Senator Collins today or anytime this week. Their numbers and a simple message is below.
*Call Senator Snowe: Toll free: 800-432-1599 DC: 202-224-5344
*Call Senator Collins: DC: 202-224-2523 Bangor: 945-0417

BASIC MESSAGE: Please oppose the Oman & Peru trade agreements and work to support a new model of trade policy.

Please take this simple action. As we saw in the CAFTA fight, it makes a real difference when we all work together. If we can stop the Oman & Peru trade agreements we give ourselves a lot of momentum heading into 2007 when Congress will debate the future of our trade policy. Congressman Michaud and Allen both oppose these trade deals.
