Urge Sen. Wyden to Oppose the Korea Free Trade Agreement

The Bush-negotiated Korea Free Trade Agreement is the biggest FTA since NAFTA.  Help protect jobs and the environment in Oregon and beyond by doing your part to defeat this old-model trade pact.
Senator Ron Wyden, who chairs the Senate Trade Subcommittee, will play a crucial role in determining whether or not the Korea FTA Moves forward.
Please call Senator Wyden today at 503.326.7525 and tell him you oppose the Korea Free Trade Agreement.
