INVITE: Join Bernie Sanders On Conf Call TODAY About Anti-Fast Track Campaign

Please join the Progressive States Network, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, Montana State Senator Jim Elliott and others Friday 3/16 at 1pm EST for this important conference call about the national state-based campaign to stop President Bush's request to reauthorize "fast track" trade authority - the authority that allows presidents to strip "free" trade deals of all labor, human rights and environmental standards. As you may have heard, a new ad campaign has launched in Montana against fast track in the wake of the Montana Senate's powerful anti-fast track resolution. This fight is just starting to heat up across the country. The call-in info is below in the media advisory sent out by the Progressive States Network today.
