Agenda for Sunday's Call

"TPP: A Global Distraction" – Interactive Conference Call
Special Guest Robert Kuttner, The American Prospect/Economic Policy Institute

This Sunday, join Andrea Miller, Executive Director, People Demanding Action, and Stop Fast Track coalition allies as we welcome special guest Robert Kuttner, co-founder of The American Prospect and The Economic Policy Institute, for a thought-provoking discussion of "what lies beneath" U.S. trade negotiations.

We'll explore the question: Are trade deals necessary structures, or a convenient smoke-screen for pushing austerity economics? Mr. Kuttner is a nationally-known columnist (the) Boston Globe, Washington Post, Village Voice, New Republic and BusinessWeek, and an award-winning author, economist and former presidential adviser.

BREAKING: We'll also get an analysis from Shane Larson, Legislative Director, Communications Workers of America, of the JUST LEAKED TPP INVESTMENT CHAPTER TEXT, and hear from Beth Allen, CWA, and Kathryn Johnson, Public Citizen, about plans for upcoming Congressional recess actions and more, all across the country!

Team Mission
We are working to stop the corporate coup that is Fast Track. Our coalition calls provide education and coordinate partner actions.
     

Latest TPP News
The StopFastTrack campaign has seen a whirlwind of activity in recent weeks, from blistering Op-Eds and stirring floor speeches by Democratic Senators, to email blasts from dozens of groups both large and small, urging their members to rally in opposition to a Fast Track Bill. Word is that Senator Ron Wyden's office was besieged night and day for a solid week thanks to organizers at Popular Resistance and other allies, and the Congressional switchboard was lit up like a Christmas tree. Meanwhile, we've been learning more and more each week from the many new groups coming forward who will be affected if these awful free trade deals come to pass.

We have hard that a fast track bill that will be introduced in the Senate the week of April 13th. So if you haven't made an appointment with your Representative or planned a "drop in," for next week while they're home, now's the time to do it!

No time to drop in? Be sure to at least call your Senators and Representative this week, or email your member of Congress!
