Don’t Trade Away Our Water! Defeat Fast Track!

Defeat Fast Track Postcard Now Available for download

 

Fast Track drains our democracy...
Water is a human and earth right, not a commodity to be bought and sold. Free trade deals like NAFTA, CAFTA and WTO/GATS put our public water commons on the market for private profit, and threaten the availability of safe and affordable drinking water for all. The Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) or “Fast Track” process allows the White House to negotiate and sign free trade deals that deny Congress and We, the People, a voice. Free trade deals override national and local sovereignty. We need just and democratic trade that respects the rights of communities and nature.

Sample Letter:
Dear Member of Congress,
Fast Track is up for renewal June 30, 2007. I am staunchly opposed to legislation granting new Fast Track authority to President Bush during the 110th Congress. Free Trade deals like NAFTA, CAFTA and WTO/GATS have been passed via the Fast Track process, and have opened the flood gates to privatization of our public water services and resources. Multinational corporations must deliver profit to investors. Water privatization severely limits access to safe and affordable water for people and ecosystems.
Water for life, not for profit!
Do not grant Bush's White House Fast Track Authority!
