I just wanted to shoot out a quick update about the protest at Rep. Earl Blumeanuer's office. Dozens of people were there, and four were arrested when they refused to leave unless Earl committed to voting NO on the US-Peru Free Trade Agreement, which is up for a vote in the House Ways and Means Committee tomorrow. Blumenauer is on that committee, but has refused to comment publicly on how he will vote. Unfortunately, it looks like he will vote for this latest piece of the Bush Trade Agenda. At yesterday's Town Hall meeting, trade was the second most mentioned issue, yet Earl refused to comment on the impending vote, even after being asked directly several times.
Call his office (503) 231-2300, and let him know how you feel about the Bush Trade Agenda, and tomorrow's likely vote.
