from the Oxfam newsletter (29 July 2004):
Thanks to all of you who took action on the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA). Nearly 8,000 eCommunity members emailed their representatives and let them know that this agreement will worsen poverty and inequality in Central America.
Unable to galvanize support for CAFTA in Congress, the Bush administration has delayed the vote on this bill until after the November elections. While this is a great victory for the Oxfam America eCommunity and the Make Trade Fair campaign, we must remain vigilant to ensure that this version of CAFTA never gets passed. Oxfam staff will continue to monitor the agreement and keep you updated. Thanks again for your support! Read more about CAFTA and what you can do.
