Let's keep the momentum going! Please sign up for this gathering right away!
Message from your host, Chip T.: This will be a rally and protest. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (#TPP), a global trade agreement being secretly negotiated by multinational corporations and industry trade groups, will affect nearly every aspect of Americans lives. If passed, it will undermine state, local and federal laws, including those governing food safety, environmental protection, internet freedom, worker rights, democratic sovereignty, healthcare and drug prices, and banking and finance regulation.
In short, it will be a disaster for public health and safety, future sustainability of the worlds food supply and basic democratic principles.
When asked why it was being negotiated in secret, the US trade negotiator said, "Because if the people knew what was in it, it could never be passed." Its bad enough that Congress and the public have been shut out of these negotiations, while corporations are running the show. But even worse, the Obama Administration wants to ram the TPP through Congress using a Nixon-era process called Fast Track.
On November 25th, Barack Obama will be in Beverly Hills for two high dollar Democratic fundraisers. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will be there as well. Let's be there to greet Obama with our signs and chants and tell him, Reid and Pelosi to stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
