Forwarded document, to be used in all appropiate ways.
FORWARD WIDELY! FORWARD TO FREE-TRADE/GLOBALIZATION LISTS!
June 19, 2001 over 250 giant corporations from across the country came together in the
Ronald Reagan International Trade Building in Washington DC to announce a new business
coalition, USTrade, that will work to push the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), a new
round of the WTO, and
especially FAST TRACK in the U.S. Congress. A preliminary analysis of those present at the
meeting indicates large numbers of wealthy Caucasian males wearing expensive suits.
...(leaked) contact list with direct phone, fax, and emails for the 30 or so members of "steering
committee" of the coalition from groups like the American Chemistry Council (chemical
industry, also biotech), National Association of
Manufacturers, Coalition of Service Industries, and more.
The steering committee contact list is attached in Microsoft Word format, as well as a list of all
the corporations that are members of USTrade. It is also pasted below.
While the Sierra Student Coalition offers this information to you only as a public service, a little
birdie has told us that this list could be used to send large numbers of emails, faxes, and
phone calls to these corporate free-traders. The little birdie thinks that blasting faxes, emails,
and phone calls to these people 9AM to 5PM EST the WEEK OF JUNE 25, 2001 asking
them about their true intentions with their trade policies might
inconvenience them a whole lot.
USTrade is an enormous business coalition - almost as big as our movement is broad.
They're taking a page from our playbook in doing this. This is an unprecedented step for
business groups to take, but they know they will have to face us - the new anti-globalization
movement - in these fights to get what they want. But don't underestimate this business
coalition. They have
a lot of money and a lot of power on Capitol Hill.
They are pushing Fast Track hard, and the Fast Track situation is heating up. The Republican
leadership is pushing for a vote on Fast Track in the House of Reps. as early as July. After
you fax and email these corporate free-traders, FAX AND CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE
IN CONGRESS. Fast Track would vastly increase the odds that Bush will be able to ram a
new WTO round and the FTAA through Congress - it too must be stopped!
Tell your REPRESENTATIVE TO OPPOSE FREE TRADE and the FAST TRACK
PROPOSAL PUT FORTH BY REP. CRANE!!! Call the Capitol switchboard at 202.224.3121,
ask to be connected to your representative (look it up at www.congress.org),
ask to speak with the aide that deals with trade, and TELL THEM UNEQUIVOCABLY THAT
THEY SHOULD REJECT FAST TRACK!!! Also set up a meeting or protest during the July 4
recess when your member of Congress is in their home district!
Both the Sierra Student Coalition and the little birdie agree that we CANNOT let those wealthy
white men from USTrade win this fight! Don't let them forget that we are living in a
post-Seattle, post-Quebec world - don't let them or Congress ignore our movement! We beat
Fast Track in '97 and '98. Let's do it again.
