WHAT: Trade Justice Convergence to build our Action, Skills and
Knowledge to Make Trade Fair and Stop the Central American Free Trade Agreement. Sponsored by Oxfam America, Global Justice, Sierra Student Coalition, United Students Against Sweatshops and United Students for Fair Trade.
WHY: On February 20th, 2004 Bush issued his intent to sign a Free Trade Agreement with Central America (CAFTA), threatening to push millions further into poverty, undermine rural development, indigenous rights,
workers' rights, environmental rights, access to essential medicines, family farms, democracy, women, essential services, health care, and
education. Congress will vote on the agreement as soon as June of 2004. By urging our representatives to Vote NO on CAFTA we can play a crucial
rule in helping to protect the livelihoods of millions. We have no choice but to act!
