Stop The #TPP

Stop the TPP

The corporate and political leaders of the Pacific Rim nations are meeting in cities across America such as Chicago, Dallas, San Diego, and Leesburg to turn the Pacific Ocean and its peoples into a giant privatized corporate lake characterized by non-union workers, Wal-Mart supply chain feeders, poisoned, landless agricultural laborers, a dying biodiversity, and rising, drowning sea levels. We cannot and will not let this happen.

Congressman Alan Grayson is one of the most outspoken critics of Fast Track Authority. Tonight he will discuss what’s at stake now, what to expect from the Fast Track legislation recently introduced (HR 3830 and S 1900) as well as what we can and should be doing in the upcoming days to defeat it:

Stop the Trans Pacific Partnership Fast Track

Stop the TPP

Tell your Representative to oppose H.R. 3830 the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities Act of 2014,” legislation to grant “Fast Track” authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)The TPP has been negotiated by corporate insiders with the media, the public, and even members of Congress on the outside. Sources including U.S. Trade officials tell us the TPP will have serious negative impact on millions of people. Good deals pass without the need for “Fast Track.” The TPP is not a good deal, but we can stop the TPP if we can persuade Congress to oppose “fast track” authority.

If You Thought NAFTA Was Bad, You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet

TPP may lead lead to increased gas exports and increased imported foods, while undermining our domestic laws and increasing the financialization of nature.The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a new “free trade” agreement being negotiated between the U.S. and 11 other Pacific Rim countries. Like other Free Trade Agreements (remember NAFTA?), this one is basically a permanent power grab by corporations and financial companies that will make it impossible for the citizens of countries joining the TPP to choose what laws and rules they want to live under.

For Americans, it would lead to increased gas exports and increased imported foods, while undermining our domestic laws and increasing the financialization of nature.
