FTA update

The fight against the US-Australian Free Trade Agreement, and the numerous threats it poses to Australia (from extended and expanded copyright laws (without the balancing effect of US-style fair-use guarantees) to more expensive medicine to rolling back Australia's stringent quarantine laws) is not lost yet. The ALP still haven't decided on whether to support it in the Senate, though the pressure on them to do so (as not to be tarred with the "anti-American" brush before the election) is huge. If you don't want to see the FTA come into force, now is the time to act, before it's too late. Let the ALP know that you oppose it; only with enough pressure from the public will they decide to block it.
