100,000 Costa Ricans Protest CAFTA – 10/01/07

Posted on September 30, 2007 | in Labor News | by

An estimated 100,000 Costa Ricans marched on Sunday to protest a proposed trade pact with the United States. Their concern? The Central American Free Trade pact could slash jobs in the country of 4 million people. CAFTA has been ratified by every other central American country and goes to a ratification vote on October 7. In addition to concerns over jobs, opponents to CAFTA believe it will result in the country being hit with cheap imports, like dairy and rice.
