take action

President Obama recently announced plans to push the Korea Free trade Agreement immediately after the November elections.  This Bush-negotiated pact is the biggest free trade agreement since NAFTA itself.  If passed, it will accelerate the offshoring of Oregon jobs, expose the state's environmental laws to new forms of attack and prohibit the type of banking regulations needed to head of the next financial crisis. We also know that if Korea passes, ratification of the US-Colombia FTA will not be far behind it. 

Senator Wyden chairs the Senate Trade Subcommittee, and is going to play an important role in determining whether or not the Korea deal moves forward.  Please call him right now at 503-326-7525 and let him know you want him to oppose the Korea Free Trade Agreement.
Take Action Online Now:
Write to Senator Wyden and other Members of Congress now using this online action alert.
