Threatening to attack a nuclear-armed country is extremely reckless, as well as illegal, quite regardless of any flaws the country possesses.

 

North Korea has repeatedly offered to abandon its nuclear weapons program if the United States and South Korea would stop flying over North Korea practicing to bomb it.

 

North Korea has shown interest in developing a peace treaty with the South to finally end the Korean War.

 

North Korea adhered to an agreement to halt its nuclear weapons program right up until George W. Bush labeled it a member of an axis of evil and viciously attacked one of the other designated members, Iraq.

 

Peace is possible. We demand that the U.S. government stop pushing for war and work toward a peaceful solution.


 

President Trump: Improve NAFTA for Workers and Consumers, Don't Make It Worse. Keep Your Promise

 

President Trump wants to renegotiate NAFTA. It's important that he make it better not worse. Trump's renegotiation plan on NAFTA was leaked in late March 2017 in the draft of the official Fast Track notice letter.

 

The following information is from a press release by Matt Groch from Public Citizen.

 

"The text of the notice letter to Congress outlines a negotiating agenda that is largely what was contained in the final text of the TPP, an agreement that Trump excoriated on the campaign trail. The letter includes some shocking points:

 

After promising to stop job offshoring and "bring back" manufacturing jobs to the United States, Trump's plan not only would maintain the investor protections in NAFTA and investor-state enforcement tribunals, but calls for expanding protections U.S. investors would have for relocating investment offshore. (This is written in coded language in the investment section of the document.)

 

After promising a Buy American, Hire American agenda, Trump's plan would maintain the NAFTA rules that require the United States to waive Buy American and other domestic procurement preferences so that American tax dollars are also offshored instead of being reinvested domestically to create jobs at home.

 

Language on intellectual property and access to medicines, financial services deregulation, food standards and product safety reflects the TPP standard that was extremely harmful to consumer interests.  The language on labor and environment standards describes the TPP terms that Democrats in Congress and unions uniformly rejected."

 

Here are the changes that are necessary to help make NAFTA beneficial for workers, consumers and the environment.
