Rise up to stop the global corporate coup and FLUSH the TPP! The Trans-Pacific Partnership is the latest and largest ever free-trade investor rights agreement compact and it is being negotiated in secrecy. Its transnational corporate architects have President Obama requesting Fast Track authority to get it passed without real Congressional or public oversight. The TPP is a disaster for human rights, worker rights, the environment, and the very capacity of people to pass laws to protect themselves, their communities, and the environment. SO, for goodness sake, Don’t Fast Track a Train Wreck for Democracy!
We CAN STOP the TPP by stopping Fast Track. Pull the TPP out of the shadows and into public scrutiny by joining Backbone Brigades and allies in a day of coordinated visibility actions to FLUSH the TPP! Tuesday, November 12.
Join/Form/(or transmute into 😉 a Backbone Action Brigade for Nov. 12 by using one of Backbone Campaign’s fun night-time and day-time high visibility tactics!
