Thanks to your pressure on the Obama Administration and Congress to follow through on their promise of trade reform, recent election results that called for an end to off-shoring of jobs and an outcry from Korean labor and social justice groups, there was no agreement announced at the G-20 meeting yesterday in Seoul.
However, there are promises on both sides to work tirelessly to move forward…so we must take this as a breathe and use this opportunity to educate and activate folks in WA State to stop once and for all this leftover Bush FTA that stands in the way of real trade reform.
