A Sierra Student Coalition operative, disguising himself as an elite, infiltrated the meeting
and emerged with important documents, including a 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 as well as a list of all the corporations that are members
of USTrade 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 rep. (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
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.

The majority of these numbers appear to be direct. USTrade is a new
business coalition formed in order to facilitate corporate efforts to push
Fast Track, the FTAA, and a new round of the WTO. One interesting note -
the McGraw-Hill Companies, whose CEO chaired their press conference, is a
educational materials corporation that is presumably into trade for the
potential privatization of education.
