Stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership!
Congress is currently considering a new sweeping “Free Trade” agreement—the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP)—that has been negotiated in secret and is being “fast-tracked” through Congress. Since “fast-track” authority was granted, this NAFTA-style corporate power grab will be an up-or-down vote only with no public input or hearings & virtually no debate.
So-called “free trade agreements” have dramatically increased the profits of multi-national corporate agribusiness at the expense of U.S. farmers & farmers around the world. These trade deals take power away from our local & state elected representatives & puts decision-making power into the hands of an international unelected, unaccountable body—a virtual corporate, global constitution!
Tell them to support family farms and our democracy–STOP the TPP!
