MONTANA FOR FAIR TRADE


The Montana state Senate and House of Representatives passed a joint resolution on Monday against the proposed Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA).

Read the full resolution (it's short) here.

CAFTA is part of the USTR's divide and conquer strategy. As negotiations over the proposed Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (FTAA) is more or less dead in the water--not to mention the stagnant WTO Doha "Development Round" of talks--the USTR is pursuing a number of bilateral and smaller regional FTAs in their stead.

As the song goes, "What force on Earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one?" It's easier to take on Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic than, say, all of Latin America and the Caribbean. That oughtta back Brazil into a corner.
