Flush the TPP Update - Corporate Greed Resisters! Your voice needed!
We are building the movement to stop rigged corporate trade treaties!
Corporate Greed Resisters!
The movement of movements to stop the TransPacific Partnership and other rigged corporate treaties is growing. We are building an unstoppable force, and as someone who understands the importance of this task, your voice and participation in the next phase are critical.
Just this week, The Guardian revealed that European Union negotiators shared confidential TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) text with Exxon Mobil for feedback. In the EU, where corporate lobbyists are less common than in the US, this was scandalous.
The TPP and other treaties will make it impossible for anything that comes out of the Paris climate talks to be put in place if it interferes with corporate profits. This is why we say that there can't be climate justice without trade justice.
In fact, you can put the issue that most concerns you into this sentence: "You can't have _____________ justice without trade justice." Maybe it's food, health care, workers, the Internet or something else. These treaties betray all that we care about and unite us in our opposition. Together, we can and must win!
Join the TPP resistance call this Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 9 pm Eastern/6 pm Pacific to hear proposals for next steps, and to share your feedback and ideas.
