Join Rep. Slaughter for Activist Briefing Call on Trade & China

China: The 800 Pound Dragon in the Room
Briefing Call @ 2:00 pm EST Today, April 13th

Number: (712) 775-7400
Access Code: 123776#

Why: This issue is rapidly becoming the top trade topic of 2010, as President Obama’s Administration postponed their April 15th declaration on China until later this Summer. It is impossible to understand trade reform if we ignore China’s government, the 800 pound dragon in the room.

Who: Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, Chair of the House Committee on Rules
Scott Paul, Director of the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM)
Andy Gussert, Director of Citizens Trade Campaign

What: Join us for an activist briefing call on China today (4/13/10) at 2:00 pm EST.

Where: Over 2.4 million American jobs -- in every congressional district -- have been lost as a result of the Chinese government’s unfair trade practices. Trade and labor activists everywhere are invited to join on the call.

When: Today, Tuesday, April 13th, at 2:00 pm EST.

Currency manipulation is just one of several unfair trade advantages, along with lax labor and environmental law enforcement, unsafe food exports, poor working conditions, intellectual property piracy, and policies that overlook basic human rights.
