Scrambling like mad to finish preparing protest materials for the "Stop FTAA" campaign" to distribute during coffee hour at church today. Trade ministers from all over North America will converge on Miami in ten days and it's time to bury them with petitions and messages that declare that Americans want fair trade, not FTAA. The FTAA, if it goes through, will extend NAFTA-like policies through all of North America, hurting workers and small farmers in the U.S. and in every North American country, making their struggle to subsist ever more difficult, if not impossible.

Now is the time to send e-mails, faxes, and letters to your senators and congressional representatives. To do this quickly and so easily, go to any one of these sites: Oxfam America, United for Peace and Justice, Sierra Club, or the AFL-CIO.
