Any day now this nation could find itself part of an international treaty
that abolishes freedom on seven-tenths of the world’s surface.

That’s because the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea, a treaty that has
remained latent since Bill Clinton’s presidency, has reemerged as a threat
to this nation’s sovereignty, thanks in large part to Senate Foreign
Relations Chair Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) and his fellow committee members. In
February, this committee voted unanimously to bring the treaty to the full
senate for consideration; Sen. Majority Leader Bill Frist, who is
responsible for scheduling legislation for votes, has not yet moved on this

With no public outcry in opposition, though, the pressures of support from
the Bush Administration, U.S. Navy officials, environmentalists and oil
industry executives could result in a vote any day for senate ratification.
Once two-thirds of senators approve, America will have yet another U.N.
shackle placed about her leg.

The treaty gives the United Nations control of the sea. It compromises U.S.
national security, siphons U.S. corporate and taxpayer dollars for global
interests in the form of new levies, stifles U.S. development and gives away
hard-earned U.S. technology to even non-friendly nations. This treaty
represents the “largest transfer of sovereignty to a U.N. body ever,” says
Brandon Wales, a senior associate with the Center for Security Policy. “This
is unprecedented.”

If ratified, the United States will no longer hold the right to board and
search all suspect vessels - a prohibition that will greatly endanger our
nation’s security and impede our progress with the war against terrorism.
The United States will no longer hold jurisdiction to freely explore the
ocean’s beds and waters for oil and precious magnesium without first
obtaining permission and receiving quota limitations from the International
Sea Bed Authority, a U.N. body. The United States will be required to pay a
tax on all ocean discoveries to this same U.N. body, and the United States
will also have to share its mining and exploration technology with the likes
of China and North Korea – nations that in turn can use this technology
against our own military defenses!

This treaty must be halted before the United Nations is allowed to stretch
its powers over 70% of the Earth’s surface and control of the seas!




1) Call the White House and demand that President Bush revoke his support
for this insane treaty. Recall that this is the same treaty that President
Reagan tossed aside as contrary to U.S. interests and the same treaty
subsequently that President Clinton signed. We should honor the efforts of
Reagan, and all those who value a sovereign Constitutional form of
government, and throw the shreds of this treaty back to the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee! Switchboard: (202) 456-1414 or (202) 456-1111

2) Call your representatives and tell them to put pressure on the Senate to
abolish all chances for U.S. participation in this treaty! If we can’t get
senators to listen directly, perhaps indirect pressure through the other
side of Congress will get their attention. House switchboard: (202) 225-3121

3) Call both of your senators and tell them to vote ‘no’ on ratification of
the Law of the Seas Treaty. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is trying
to push this ratification by unanimous consent, which stifles debate, hides
individual votes, and eases the path of compliance for senators who may be
facing doubts with this treaty. But they need to be informed of the true
nature of this treaty, in the event Frist schedules it for vote in the
coming days! Senate switchboard: (202) 224-3121
