The Chicago Trade With Justice Working Group strikes again…

The Chicago Trade With Justice Working Group (CTWJWG), formed just last December, has struck again. Following up on their visit to Obama campaign HQ in Downtown Chicago On December 15th (and a very popular video of the visit produced by Larry Duncan of Labor Beat), CTWJWG visited Obama & Durbin’s senate offices in the Federal Building in downtown Chicago to demand that they oppose the Colombia /U.S. Free Trade Agreement. Both Obama and Durbin supported the Peru/U.S. Free Trade Agreement, which passed in the congress in early December, betraying their promises to end trade policy that devastates the lives of workers in this country and aboard.

This time around members of CTWJWG filmed some of the dozens of individuals who signed on to our letter to Obama and Durbin, on behalf of 30 different organizations.
