expressed his support for the Occupy Wall Street movement. But what he
doesn't want people to know is that he just voted for a free trade

taxes by hiding money in Panamanian banks!

Occupy Wall Street's phony "friend" Charlie Rangel just voted for trade
agreements that will:
- encourage corporations to outsource 159,000 US jobs, many to sweatshops.
- prohibit critical regulations designed to prevent the financial sector
from causing another economic collapse.
- help corporations avoid paying taxes by hiding money in Panamanian banks.
- help Colombian narcoterrorist paramilitaries launder money in those
same Panamanian banks.
- vastly expand factory farm agriculture at the expense of the
environment, animal welfare, family farmers, and public health.
- limit access to life-saving generic drugs for the poor.
- exacerbate displacement and human rights violations against Panama's
- allow foreign corporations to bring suits in international tribunals
to attack the US, Panama, and South Korea's labor, environmental, and
other public interest laws.
- continue violations of the human rights of workers in Panama.
- obligate South Korea to lower its auto emissions standards for US
cars, exacerbating climate change.
-require South Korea to allow genetically modified US food to be
imported, in spite of a national ban on GM foods.
- increase corporate exploitation of Panama's endangered rainforests.
Don't let Rangel exploit Occupy Wall Street to improve his image at the
same time that he is selling out to Wall Street!
