ENEMYS LIST - Leaked document of lobbyist phone/fax/emails

by USTrade Thursday, Jun. 21, 2001 at 6:29 PM

Forwarded document, to be used in all appropiate ways.


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!


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.

Go to www.ssc.org for more info on Fast Track.
