Opposes NAFTA, GATT, WTO, Fast Track

Source: Vote-Smart.org NPAT questionnaire May 2, 2000

WTO is an instrument of oppression

We oppose the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the World Trade Organization as instruments of oppression throughout the world.

We call for the reassessment of all international trade negotiations in light of workers’, farmers’, consumers’, and environmental interests.
