Some progressive economics students from Korea are organizing an online 
petition against the proposed Korea-US Free Trade Agreement.
I talked to one of these students on Friday and in response was sent a 
number of documents.  I am not sending the attachments which only 
concern economics students but am passing along other *attachments* 
of more general interest.

These include the following:

o  United Nations _Latest Developments in Investor-State Dispute Settlement_ 
      (ILA Monitor #4, 2006)

o "NAFTA Chapter 11 Investor-to-state Cases: Bankrupting Democracy" (sub-titled: 
      "Lessons for Fast Track and the Free Trade Area of the Americas")

o  "Testimony of Lori Wallach Regarding the WTO Dispute Settlement System: 
      Powerful Enforcement of Unbalanced, Extensive Regulations Without Basic Due 
      Process Protections"

o Lance Taylor and Rudiger von Arnim, "Projected Benefits of the DOHA Round 
     Hinge on Misleading Trade Models" (March, 07)

I will send the materials which concern the student petition to listmembers who ask. 
The student  told me that if there is a petition for economists and academics I would be 
sent that.

*What is the view of our Korean members on the proposed agreement?*

In solidarity, Jerry
