Activism TPP

Friday, Jan 31: Day of Action against TPP

Pulling TPP Out of the ShadowsFriday Jan 31st Day Of Action and Rally to Celebrate the Defeat of TPP 

While it may be a little premature to declare a final victory over the TPP, with more than 50 organizations demanding congress vote NO to Fast Track, a Inter-Continental Day Of Action on the anniversary of passage of NAFTA, multiple leaks of the TPP secretive text, over 150 members of congress declaring opposition to TPP and Fast Track, twitter storms during the State of the Union, and citizens mobilizing across the U.S., it seems pretty clear which way the tide is moving.Let’s strike the final blows against this Corporate Coup threatening democracy and our sovereignty. Action is needed now!

Although opposition to the TPP is strong and growing, President Obama will use the platform of his State of the Union address to push the corporatocracy agenda.

Ways to Take Action:

  • Join the Twitter Storm Tonight during the State Of The Union (Details HERE)
  • Overpass Banner in your district between now and Friday
  • Fax Spineless Citations to your representative for not standing up for democracy by publicly opposing Fast Track (Find out where they stand by visiting HERE, so far only McDermott is opposing Fast Track in Washington state)
  • Call your Reps
  • and most importantly, take to the streets! Join Backbone and friends to Deliver Spineless Citations in Person on Friday January 31st and Rally at Westlake Center at noon.

If you have any questions contact Team Backbone
