STAND UNITED AGAINST BAD TRADE DEALS
Updated On: May 29, 2015

ON JUNE 3RD, WE WILL STAND UNITED AGAINST BAD TRADE DEALS

After being stalled for weeks, Fast Track authority on the Trans-Pacific Partnership was approved by the Senate late last week. The bill now goes to the House, where the vote is expected to be tight.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a 1,000 page, 29 chapter trade deal that is being negotiated in secret.  What we do know from leaks coming out of negotiations is that it gives foreign corporations the power to sue taxpayers for any profit loss incurred by labor laws, health and safety laws and other regulations.  It basically puts all the power in the hands of multinational corporations who can veto whatever laws voters prefer.

While we don't have the monetary resources that multi-national corporations and Wall Street are putting behind their effort, we do have our collective voice.  Wednesday, June 3 will be a massive, national call-in day, with members and activists from hundreds of organizations planning to contact their representatives and make their voices heard. This week, there are hundreds of meetings with members of Congress and other district events, and activists are spotlighting the harm that Fast Track will do to the environment, health care and prescription drug costs, food labeling, consumer rights and other issues. 

Please spread the word by forwarding this message onto your friends, family and co-workers via email and by sharing messages we will be posting on our FaceBook site in the days leading up to the vote.
