CAGJ delivers Trade Justice Banner to Rep McDermott

On September 28, 2011 CAGJ members Elaine Nonneman and Katrin Wilde along with Kristen Beifus of the WA Fair Trade Coalition delivered CAGJ’s banner to the office of our Representative, Jim McDermott with a strong message:

“Rep McDermott: Free Trade Kills Farmers – Vote No on US-Colombia FTA!”

The banner was covered with hundreds of signatures gathered since June at CAGJ’s Strengthening Local Economies Everywhere dinner, Seattle Farmers Markets, where many farmers and other food producers signed the banner [see photos here and here!], at Seattle Tilth’s Harvest Fair, and multiple other venues.
