Last night's webinar on "free trade" agreements ~ @janehamsher @firedoglake

Thanks to everyone who joined our emergency webinar on the Korea, Panama and Colombia free trade agreements last night.
It was an enlightening discussion that exposed the dire consequences these agreements will have on American jobs, workers' rights and the entire global economy.
If you missed the webinar or would like to view it again, please check out the video here: http://vimeo.com/firedoglake/fta
We had a great panel which included celebrated actor, activist, and chair of TransAfrica Danny Glover; Professor Joseph Jordan of TransAfrica's Scholars' Council; TransAfrica Chief of Staff Joia Nuri and Lori Wallach, the director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch.
Congress is likely to vote on these trade agreements tomorrow. If you haven't already, please watch the webinar to learn about the dangers these agreements pose.
