URGENT ACTION MAY 27, 1994 Please call or write your congressional Representative and Senators to protest President Clinton's decision to unconditionally renew China's Most-Favored-Nation trading status.

Congress has the power to overturn President Clinton's decision. Ask them to support future legislation to impose stiff MFN sanctions on China as a result to their lack of progress in "protecting Tibet's religious and cultural heritage." Write to: Representative ________ U.S. House of Representatives Washington, DC 20515 Senator _______ U.S. Senate Washington, DC 20510 or call the Capitol Switchboard and ask to be connected to your Senators or Representative: (202) 224-3121.
