THE COST OF FREE TRADE WITH ELIZABETH SWAGER

  Broadcast in Politics

Call in to speak with the host

(760) 542-3900

On June 18 Take Back America for the People internet radio hosted Elizabeth Swager, Assistant Director of Oregon Fair Trade, part of a nationwide group of organizations working to educate the public on why we must fight free trade policies and how to do it. We will be talking about the  costs of free trade policies, focusing on the Trans-Pacific Free Trade Agreement.

The costs of "free" trade range from loss of jobs shipped to cheap labor markets to weakening worker protection and environmental laws around the world to undermining the national sovereignty of the US and other nations whose governments make them signatories to the agreements.

TPFTA is being in negotiated in secret by corporate interests with nations around the world. These talks are so secret that Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), chair of the Senate Trade subcommittee has been refused access to negotiation documents.

These are issues that should alarm all Americans regardless of political philosophy. Get the facts and learn how you can help fight corporate control of the US government by multinational corporations whose power is fast making the idea of nations irrelevant.

This show will be rebroadcast on Saturday, June 23 at 10 AM CST on the Star Com Radio network.



Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to reveal to the American public the true costs of corporate control of the US government.
