Though we fought hard for more than two years, pro-TPP forces still managed to pressure Congress to approve Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority. Those same forces then lobbied hard at recent TPP negotiations in Atlanta, and word is that the U.S. and TPP partner nations have now reached an agreement in principle. (The American people still don't know the exact details, because the text remains secret until President Obama announces he'll sign it.)
But it isn't over: Congress still has to vote to approve TPP.
Join the National TPP Interactive Conference Call this Sunday with our special guest, Lori Wallach, Director, Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch, and other Stop TPP allied leaders, for a discussion of how we will fight back in the final days against this "trade deal", which is a full frontal assault to democracy.
The call begins promptly at 7:30 p.m. Sunday Eastern time (4:30 Pacific). Phone lines open 15 minutes before the call. Be sure to phone in first, (605) 562-3140, PIN: 951146# then, follow this link to the online meeting room to view the meeting agenda PowerPoint.
We have a short time to make our voices heard--and to let our members of Congress, and 2016 candidates for every office--know that they'll pay a price for supporting a deal that sells out America and rolls out the red carpet for job offshoring. TPP, according to previous text leaks, promises to make an end run around U.S. law; around consumer protections, environmental and worker safeguards, access to affordable generic medicines, and much, much more. Previous "free trade" deals have had a devastating impact on our economy--and TPP goes much further.
We must stop it--and we have just weeks to do so. Thanks for your hard work on this campaign. I understand that it's easy to get discouraged when the scales are so tipped, but the fight is not over. Please, find the time to join us on Sunday. It's important.
