News ::
Clark shows solidarity with our movement (english)
22 Nov 2003
Modified: 23 Nov 2003
While we took on the FTAA in Miami, Wes Clark unvieled policy that contrasts radically with the corporate-pillage policy of Bush:
From his policy platforms at http://www.clark04.com :

"Labor rights are human rights, and I'll treat them that way -- internationally-recognized core labor standards must be central elements of all new trade agreements. We must also improve our enforcement of labor provisions in existing agreements. Finally, we must be vigilant in our approach to unfair practices outside of the treaty context. For example, Bush has failed to prevent China from manipulating its currency, hurting American workers."

"Wes Clark would work with other countries to help raise their labor and environmental standards, transforming a race to the bottom into improvements benefit for America's workers and encourage international development. This will eliminate the rush of manufacturers to open factories in countries with hazardous factory conditions, forced labor, child labor, and suppression of freedom of association"

"Wes Clark believes that environmental and internationally recognized core labor standards should be an integral part of all future trade agreements. Wes Clark will protect American jobs and workers by enforcing America's trade laws and increasing funding for trade enforcement, not cutting it as the Bush Administration has done. "

"Require companies to disclose layoffs in America and job increases overseas. Consumer, investors, and workers all have the right to know which companies are moving which jobs overseas. As President, Wes Clark would work to develop a system of timely reporting to ensure that we have timely and accurate information on companies that export jobs. "

"Wes Clark would close outrageous loopholes in the tax code, like the ones that allow companies to avoid taxes by shifting income to Bermuda. "

We've made a lot of noise and finally someone is listening. Let's volunteer in this campaign for the ultimate protest: election day, N8 2004!

And yet dear Wes Clark also played a key role in the Waco massacre and assailed Howard Dean (not that i'm a huge Dean fan) for favoring reregulation. He loves the working people alright.
