      "Reject CAFTA" Update

      Updated Legislative Alert: Activate Congress to Reject the Central
      American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA)

      Background: The Bush administration announced on January 25 that it
      has reached agreement with Costa Rica to add it to four of its
      neighbors in creating a Central American Free Trade Area (CAFTA).
      The administration will likely submit the CAFTA agreement to
      Congress for approval sometime in the next few months. Once the
      CAFTA agreement is presented to Congress, the House and Senate will
      have 90 days to approve or reject it.

      An AP article on January 25, "U.S., Costa Rica Reach Free Trade
      Deal," explained what the administration hopes to accomplish with
      CAFTA: "For its part, the administration hopes to use congressional
      passage of CAFTA as a stepping stone to achieving an even bigger
      goal, creation of a Free Trade Area of the Americas [FTAA], covering
      all 34 democracies in the Western Hemisphere."

      Fortunately, CAFTA may be the most politically vulnerable of the
      series of free trade agreements designed to set the stage for the
      FTAA. Congressional rejection of CAFTA in 2004 would help build
      momentum for rejection of the FTAA in 2005.

      Request: Now that Congress is back in session, please contact your
      representative and senators in vigorous opposition to CAFTA. If
      you've already contacted them a few weeks ago, contact them again.
      This issue is that important. We must stop the sovereignty-
      destroying FTAA! See the reasons why by visiting
      http://www.stoptheftaa.org/. Persuade others to visit this same web
      page, then join us in influencing Congress to reject both CAFTA and
      the FTAA.
