Finally Gettin' Afta CAFTA

Dena has been sending me updates on the anti-CAFTA campaign. CAFTA is the attempt by our corporate criminals to extend the horrors of NAFTA to Central America and the Dominican Republic--more cheap labor, less environmental and worker protection, fewer jobs here, fewer rights there. Check out the CISPES site to see what you can do to stop CAFTA, or just call your Congresscritters and let them know that Bush-Clinton style "free trade" is a crime that is destroying this country AND the rest of the hemisphere.

If you really want to learn about CAFTA, Global Exchange is offering a trip to Nicaragua in May that sounds very interesting. I'm going to wait until I've had a few weeks of intensive Spanish training, probably this August in Mexico, before I go on any more Global Exchange tours to Latin America. Doesn't mean you have to, though!
