TPP is coming and the average American doesn’t care now… but, surely outcry next summer as our economy plummets due to vast outsourcing.
We must put a stop to the fast tracking of TPP!
Please contact our Senators and help voice the American people!
I have tweeted and emailed… do your part or TPP will be passed on the fast track without any influence from those it ultimately affects!
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has been in 16 rounds of negotiations over 3 years …..done in secrecy except for the 60 CORPORATE advisors that have been working with the Obama admin to develop the terms. The TPP gives *corporations* MORE rights than people! It’s about creating a backdoor for corporations, and is NOT about trade. It would increase corporate rights and decrease sovereign rights. Negotiations are suppose to be completed by the end of this year, 2013!
This is a copy of what I have been emailing and mailing to my states senators and representatives— please feel free to use this template. Without action there is no reaction! Be the change you wish to see.
Please do NOT yield Congress’ authority to “Fast Track.”
We can not tolerate Fast Track after the way this agreement has been negotiated. Don’t let Congress put itself in the position of no see, no amend, no time to think it through, all while a huge corporate PR campaign is underway. With Fast Track Congress will not be able to make changes and will have no time to think about the consequences.
Corporations are supposed to be subject to the laws that We, the People make. The current trade-agreement process is the other way around. It sets up a situation where democracy is a competitive disadvantage, because things like good wages and environmental laws are a “cost.” It sets up a process of negotiations between corporate interests that sits above our laws, limiting what we can do about it. These trade agreements get democracy out of the way. “Fast Track” gets democracy out of the way so they can ram these agreements through. Don’t let them get away with this!
Thank you very much for your time and consideration in regards to such an important matter.
