Over 1,500 Organizations Call on Congress to Oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)

WASHINGTON - A united cross-sector movement of 1,525 civil society organizations resent a letter today urging Congress to oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). They highlighted for each Congress member the number of groups on the letter with supporters in their state. The letter comes the same day as the corporate lobby group “U.S. Coalition for TPP” sent its own letter to Congress in support of the trade agreement.

All of this information about TTP and TTIP (now waiting for the unelected EU Parliament to sign it) has been around for weeks, and we can still read articles in which these pacts are mentioned favorably. Maybe there's too much information, too many details, for the general public (the people who will be most negatively affected) to understand, but isn't it enough to know that our judicial, political and social securities and freedoms will be annulled by courts that reward and protect the .0001% masters of our universe? If history books are still being written 50 years from now (which i doubt), perhaps they'll explain why some people were willing to aid and abet the last vestiges of civilization being destroyed.

Open the link to the letter and find the one addressed to the Congressperson who represents your district. They're listed by state and then each one who got a personal letter. Write, email, phone your rep and insist he or she votes NO! That US Coalition got right to each of them personally; we should do that too.
