On World Cancer Day, Patients’ Civil Disobedience Protest at PhRMA to Warn of ‘Death Sentence’ Imposed by Trans-Pacific Partnership Expansion of Medicine Monopolies

WASHINGTON - WHAT: Demonstration with protestors wearing surgical masks and scrubs, carrying oversized pill bottles with giant price tags. News conference and civil disobedience on World Cancer Day in protest of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal that will have just been signed in New Zealand the day before by the United States and 11 other countries. Cancer patients, health professionals and public health advocates will raise their life-and-death concerns about the TPP’s implications for access to cancer medicines through compelling visuals, brief statements and chants.

It is just unbelievable to think the president of The United States is backing the TPP wholeheartedly and asking Congress to back it also. How can anyone think the president is doing what is best for America and its citizens?
