Twenty years ago this month, NAFTA was passed delivering two decades of unfulfilled promises. Now, there is an even bigger agreement in the pipeline called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) involving 12 countries across the globe with the potential to give corporations even more power, trample labor rights, and so much more.
To make matters worse, the Fast Track bill was introduced to Congress and if passed, the legislation would allow the TPP and other pacts to be ‘fast tracked’ through Congress and not be tested by our representatives in government by ordinary review, amendment, and debate procedures.
Urge your Congressperson: Oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership! Stop the Fast Track!
We’ve known this was coming, and we’re ready to ramp up the call to action. After you have e-mailed your Congressperson, give them a call or meet with them in person to let them know you are serious about protecting workers and the environment. Your member will be back in your home district January 17-26, so call them up and ask for a meeting.
Here in San Francisco, we’re joining with other community, environmental, and social justice organizations to participate in the Day of Action Against the TPP on January 31. Join in and find an action in your community. Can't find one? Be in touch and we’ll help you plan one. Now’s the time when all our actions matter.
Together we will beat the Fast Track and Stop the TPP.
