George Bush today sent a proposal to Congress to create yet another “free” trade agreement — this time with Colombia, a country where more than 2,200 trade unionists have been assassinated since 1991.
During an appearance at the White House, Bush said he signed a letter giving Congress 90 working days to vote on the agreement.
The labor federations Change to Win and the AFL-CIO oppose this agreement. Change to Win says: “The Colombia “free” trade agreement is a bad deal for American and Colombian workers alike.”
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton also oppose this agrement. So should all Democrats, including you.
More, after the fold.
