On the night of Thursday, June 30th, the United States senate voted to pass a new free trade agreement called the Dominican Republic Central American Free Trade Agreement, known as DR-CAFTA. It would eliminate trade tarrifs between not only US and the Dominican Republic, but also Costa Rica, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Guatemala as well.

In addition to criticisms from the sugar industry, labor unions, and AIDS activists, supporters of animal liberation are now denouncing the impending agreement. Hear how this trade agreement would threaten animals' lives in the posted mp3.
