Mobilized & Winning: an Encouraging Update on the TPP

Finally, some good news! We’re not done yet, but it’s great to see the unified diversity resisting the dreaded TPP. As one protestor’s sign says, “Monsanto, Chevron and Halliburton all want TPP. Any questions?” Please click here for the full article, “Mobilized & Winning: Now It’s Time to Escalate.”

How We Win

“The movement opposed to corporate trade is larger – representing tens of millions of Americans; broader – representing people concerned about food, water, healthcare, the Internet, workers’ rights, the environment, banking regulation and more; and more committed because they have seen degradation of the economy and environment by NAFTA and similar corporate trade agreements.

“The key is for this movement to mobilize now. The next two months will decide whether corporate trade is finished for the remainder of President Obama’s term in office. If people take action (go to www.StopFastTrack.com), we will win.

“There is also a week of national actions being planned in February during the congressional recess. Take the pledge at www.FlushtheTPP.org to get involved and stay informed.

“This is a battle between mass people power and trans-national corporate power. It is a battle the people can win, and it is essential for every issue we care about that we win.”

    Thank you, Laura, for this reminder! hadn’t looked at those sites recently 😦
    specially liked the one that allowed me to contact Senator Ron Wyden to tell him of my opposition to TPP/Fast Track, because I know my own representative Rokita always and only “represents” the Global Elite – I only contact him to find out what his aides’ canned response is on any issue this time (in Indiana, “global trade” is equated with jobs. Yeah, right. Jobs for who and of what kind? and when those politicians did nothing to save the jobs we had, why would they be for new ones?

  4. You’re welcome. Yes, being in Indiana, I have received that canned response many a time. I just mostly flush the TPP with intention, down the toilet, with apologies to the waste stream. 🙂
