Leaked Corporate Free-Trader Direct Phone/Fax/Emails!!!
20 Jun 2001
A Sierra Student Coalition operative, disguising himself as an elite,
infiltrated the meeting and emerged with important documents, including a
contact list with direct phone, fax, and emails for the 30 or so members of
"steering committee" of the coalition

FORWARD WIDELY! FORWARD TO FREE-TRADE/GLOBALIZATION LISTS!

June 19, 2001 over 250 giant corporations from across the country came
together in the Ronald Reagan International Trade Building in Washington DC
to announce a new business coalition, USTrade, that will work to push the
Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), a new round of the WTO, and
especially FAST TRACK in the U.S. Congress. A preliminary analysis of those
present at the meeting indicates large numbers of wealthy Caucasian males
wearing expensive suits.

A Sierra Student Coalition operative, disguising himself as an elite,
infiltrated the meeting and emerged with important documents, including a
contact list with direct phone, fax, and emails for the 30 or so members of
"steering committee" of the coalition from groups like the American
Chemistry Council (chemical industry, also biotech), National Association of
Manufacturers, Coalition of Service Industries, and more.

The steering committee contact list is attached in Microsoft Word format, as
well as a list of all the corporations that are members of USTrade. It is
also pasted below.

While the Sierra Student Coalition offers this information to you only as a
public service, a little birdie has told us that this list could be used to
send large numbers of emails, faxes, and phone calls to these corporate
free-traders. The little birdie thinks that blasting faxes, emails, and
phone calls to these people 9AM to 5PM EST the WEEK OF JUNE 25, 2001 asking
them about their true intentions with their trade policies might
inconvenience them a whole lot.

USTrade is an enormous business coalition - almost as big as our movement is
broad. They're taking a page from our playbook in doing this. This is an
unprecedented step for business groups to take, but they know they will have
to face us - the new anti-globalization movement - in these fights to get
what they want. But don't underestimate this business coalition. They have
a lot of money and a lot of power on Capitol Hill.

They are pushing Fast Track hard, and the Fast Track situation is heating
up. The Republican leadership is pushing for a vote on Fast Track in the
House of Reps. as early as July. After you fax and email these corporate
free-traders, FAX AND CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE IN CONGRESS. Fast Track
would vastly increase the odds that Bush will be able to ram a new WTO round
and the FTAA through Congress - it too must be stopped!

Tell your REPRESENTATIVE TO OPPOSE FREE TRADE and the FAST TRACK
PROPOSAL
PUT FORTH BY REP. CRANE!!! Call the Capitol switchboard at 202.224.3121,
ask to be connected to your representative (look it up at www.congress.org),
ask to speak with the aide that deals with trade, and TELL THEM
UNEQUIVOCABLY THAT THEY SHOULD REJECT FAST TRACK!!! Also set up a meeting
or protest during the July 4 recess when your member of Congress is in their
home district!

Both the Sierra Student Coalition and the little birdie agree that we CANNOT
let those wealthy white men from USTrade win this fight! Don't let them
forget that we are living in a post-Seattle, post-Quebec world - don't let
them or Congress ignore our movement! We beat Fast Track in '97 and '98.
Let's do it again.

The majority of these numbers appear to be direct. USTrade is a new
business coalition formed in order to facilitate corporate efforts to push
Fast Track, the FTAA, and a new round of the WTO. One interesting note -
the McGraw-Hill Companies, whose CEO chaired their press conference, is a
educational materials corporation that is presumably into trade for the
potential privatization of education.

Have fun.
