SANTA ANA, LOS ANGELES AND COMPTON ARE NEXT STOPS FOR 'ECONOMIC EARTHQUAKE EXPRESS'

 SANTA ANA, LOS ANGELES AND COMPTON ARE NEXT STOPS
 FOR 'ECONOMIC EARTHQUAKE EXPRESS'
 Good Jobs, Safe Food, Clean Environment are Themes
 for Fair Trade Caravan, Sept. 23-27
 The Bush administration's proposed free trade agreement with Mexico will endanger economic conditions, purity standards for produce and the environment in the United States and Mexico. This message will be brought home to Californians in Santa Ana, Los Angeles and Compton when the "Economic Earthquake Express" pulls into their towns later this week.
 The Economic Earthquake Express is a fair trade caravan that includes a 48-foot flatbed fitted out as a traveling stage, a 23-foot bobtail van that houses a video viewing area and a variety of motorhomes and other vehicles bearing banners that say, "Free Trade is an Economic Earthquake -- and it's George Bush's Fault." It is on a seven-week tour of California to educate and activate the public on the impact NAFTA will have on their state. The caravan is sponsored by the Teamsters Union, the AFL-CIO and the Fair Trade Campaign.
