Challenge US Korea FTA & TPP Negotiator @ Korea Society Event

On Tuesday March 19th at 11:30AM at the Korea Society (The Korea Society, 950 Third Avenue, 8th Floor, New York, NY), Wendy Cutler, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Japan, Korea and APEC Affairs, and chief negotiator of the Korea-US Free Trade Agreement will speak at the Korea Society. With Japan expected to announce that it will join TPP this week, this is a critical opportunity to speak out against the infamous Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Korea FTA, which isn't even succeeding for the US on its own terms (see http://tradejustice.net/kdef).

TradeJustice activists plan to attend the event and pose questions that expose why TPP and the Korea FTA are bad deals for the 99% - limiting access to lifesaving generic drugs; outsourcing good-paying union jobs to sweatshops; giving corporations the right to attack our environmental laws in international tribunals; replacing family farms with corporate GMO plantations and polluting, inhumane factory farms; limiting internet freedom; displacing indigenous communities; putting endangered wildlife and ecosystems at risk by expanding resource extraction; and lowering food safety standards!

We'll be meeting up in advance at a nearby cafe to prepare and distribute questions (you don't need to have prior knowledge of the issue to participate), so if you'd like to come, please call us to RSVP so we can give you the details of where we'll be meeting. If you're
unable to meet in advance, but can come to the event itself (11:30AM registration, noon start time), let us know in advance and we'll help you prepare a question that you can bring with you. It's also be good to have someone to record with something subtle like a good cell phone camera, so if you have one, please come!

Call Adam at (718) 218-4523 or email adam@tradejustice.net to RSVP or if you have any questions.
