It is crucial for animal activists to contact their legislators as soon as possible and urge them to vote against anti-animal agreement. Take A Few Minutes to Call, Fax and E-mail Your House Representatives Now And Tell Them You Do Not Support This Deal!

 

EMAIL YOUR REP.

Go to http://action.citizen.org/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=3664 There, you can fill in your name and address and an email message against OFTA will be sent directly to your house member. You can replace the provided sample letter (the text in the small box) with the animal-oriented sample letter at http://wetlands-preserve.org/no_count.php?page=OmanSample by deleting the sample letter in the small box, copying the text of the Wetlands Preserve page and pasting it into the small box We recommend customizing the letter a bit for maximum impact.

 

CALL YOUR REP:

Call the U.S. Capitol at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Representative’s office. If you aren’t sure who represents you in Congress, go to http://action.citizen.org/getLocal.jsp to find out.

When you reach your representative's office, ask to speak to the person who handles trade issues.

Give your name, say that you are a constituent, and say that you want your rep to vote no on OFTA, an inhumane, anti-animal trade agreement.

Here’s a sample of what you can say during your call:

 

“Hi, my name is _______________. I live in______(your city)___ and I’m calling to urge Representative ___________ to vote AGAINST the Oman Free Trade Agreement (OFTA). I’m concerned about the agreement’s weak environmental provisions and unlimited investor protections as these could destroy habitats, threaten endangered species, and weaken animal protection laws. OFTA mandates no minimum environmental standards or enforcement of major environmental and species protection agreements. It also allows corporations to challenge US government decisions on federal natural resource contracts. This is unacceptable, and I strongly urge Representative ____________ to vote AGAINST the bill.

Can you tell me Rep.___________________’s position on OFTA? Can you email me a statement of Rep __________’s position?

Thank you.”

You can find additional points to bring up in your call at http://wetlands-preserve.org/no_count.php?page=OmanTalking

 

FAX YOUR REP

Go to http://action.citizen.org/getLocal.jsp to find your rep’s fax number. Send your rep a letter and put it to the attention of your rep’s trade aide (you can get the aide’s name when you call the office to express your opposition to OFTA). You can find a sample letter you can copy and adapt at http://wetlands-preserve.org/no_count.php?page=OmanSample
