Target: Parties to the Korea-United States Free Trade Agreement (KorUS FTA)

Petition Background (Preamble):

Korean Americans are against War, Neoliberalism, the Korea-United States Free Trade Agreement (KorUS FTA) and the Bush Free Trade Agenda that will destroy people in South Korea and other small countries.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, are opposing:

(1) the secretive and undemocratic nature through which the Korea-U.S. FTA has been negotiated;

(2) a trade agreement that will destroy the livelihood of South Korean farmers and harm the environment;

(3) a trade agreement that directly threatens vital public services such as health-care, energy provision and education;

(4) a trade agreement that threatens cultural diversity by allowing for harmful infringement on South Korea's cultural industry, such as reduction of screen quota that will hurt the film industry;

(5) a reduction in government procurement contracts that promotes the growth of small businesses.
