Protesters Will Be Present Today at Senate Finance Committee Meeting on U.S. So-Called Fair Trade Agreements with Colombia, Korea, Panama

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—October 11, 2011.  Today at 4 o’clock at the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Room 215, members of the October2011 Movement will be present to make their opinions known about S.1641, S.1642, and S.1643, so-called free trade agreements that will spell further loss of jobs for American workers.  These bills represent trade deals that will benefit multinational corporations but kill U.S. jobs. 

Such trade agreements aren’t “free.”  There is a cost, borne both by American workers who lose their jobs and by foreign workers who are exploited for corporate profit.  The latter work in often terrible conditions while the business leaders who employ them rake in enormous amounts of money.

The October2011 Movement, which has been occupying Freedom Plaza since October 6th, stands with the workers of this country and the world and against corporate exploitation.
