Blocking Bush’s Fast Track

As part of the El Salvador Not for Sale Campaign, CISPES and anti-globalization allies took on “Fast Track” – otherwise known as trade promotion authority – in 2001.  CISPES had launched its campaign to oppose Fast Track, “NAFTA for Central America” (what later became known as CAFTA) and the FTAA, and to support alternatives being built in El Salvador and the rest of Latin America.  Fast Track ultimately passed by a few votes in the summer of 2001.
