November 23: National Call-in Day to Vice President Al Gore
 
There are now just eleven days remaining until the WTOs 135 member countries meet  in Seattle to write new international trade and investment agreements, including the  GFLA.  You have done a tremendous job in letting the President know you oppose this attack on the worlds forests, but the Administration is still intent in signing away forest protection laws and increasing logging at the WTO Ministerial meeting.

It is time for one last push to let the Administration know that we want President Clinton to take forests off of the chopping block at the WTO.

On Tuesday, November 23, join forest activists from around the country and call Vice President Gore at 202/456-2326.  Ask him to tell Preside
nt Clinton to drop the GFLA at the WTO because it is bad for forests and bad for biodiversity.
