Office of the U.S. Trade Representative ? 600 17th St NW, Washington, DC
Lead negotiators for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Free Trade Agreement will be meeting in Washington, DC this month for several days of horse-trading aimed at speeding the massive pact towards conclusion. This round is even more secretive than the last three years of closed-door negotiations, in that they are not even including a stakeholder process.
Please join representatives from the environmental, labor, family farm, faith, consumer, public health and other social justice movements for a lunch-hour rally that lets TPP negotiators know that people are watching and will hold them accountable no matter how far underground they take their negotiations.
If possible, bring your own signs, noise makers and as many friends and colleagues as possible. For more info, or to get involved in the planning, email TPPAction@citizenstrade.org.
Sept. 21 and 22: Stop Fast Track Action Camp with Bill Moyer of the Backbone Campaign and Steph Cascadia of Rising Tide, where we?ll work together on strategy for direct action and developing ways to convey our message creatively.
Sept. 23 and 24: Two days of creative actions to bring attention to the TPP using Washington, DC as our stage.
Can?t make it? You can still make a difference by forwarding this announcement to friends in the DC area, and by writing your Members of Congress urging them to oppose Fast Track for the TPP.
Food and Lodging will be available.
Join the Trade Brigade that will be working Congress through the vote. Join whenever you can to take action for trade that puts people and the planet over profit. Schedule a few days when your group can come to DC to stop Fast Track and stop the TPP.
