CAFTA Delays

This is a serious problem that needs to addressed right away:

The delay in implementing the Central American Free Trade Agreement has hit the region's clothing industry hard, putting factories in legal limbo, while much of their business leaves for Asia.

The free-trade agreement, known as CAFTA, was supposed to take effect Jan. 1. But none of the member countries - Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic - was ready to comply with what some complain is an ever-changing set of rules and regulations proposed by U.S. negotiators, including strengthening of intellectual-property laws.

Hi, my name is maria Zuppello and I'm the first Italian reporter getting alone, with a small digital camera, without a crew to Antarctica.
I'm writing from New York where I'm working on a documentary about bioweapons with Danny Schechter. Former CNN and CBS producer Danny won 2 Emmy Awards and he's famous all around the world to be "the news dissector": every day he criticizes the American Media System.
I have been creating a blog about my experience with him
and he still has his own blog
You can write in Italian as well as in English and Spanish
Keep in touch!
