Dear Corporate Greed Resisters,

As we speak, the White House is preparing Congress to pass legislation that would ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) during the coming Lame Duck session. Just last week, Obama insisted that the ratification of the TPP in Congress will “get done,” as he marketed the anti-democratic agreement in Vietnam.

That is why this November, we are launching the #NoLameDuckUprising!

We need thousands to join us as we make the TPP impossible for Congress to pass.

The #NoLameDuck Uprising begins on Nov. 12-13 with an action camp in Washington, DC. We will use the first days of the Lame Duck session to mobilize thousands of people for actions in DC from Nov. 14-17.We will bring the resistance back home between Nov. 21-23 when folks from every corner of the country will pressure their state’s members of Congress to vote against the TPP.

Register now to join the #NoLameDuckUprising!Nov. 12-13: Action Camp in DC

Nov 14-17: Week of Action in DC

    I don’t understand? This corporate crime against humanity is being rejected in Europe, so even if this happens here, it will not work, since it is supposed to be a globalization plan, or am I missing something?

    • Sojoiurner, it is the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership that appears to be on its way to rejection in Europe, a separate pact from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The TTIP is between the U.S. and the European Union; TPP is among 12 countries on both sides of the Pacific. Both need to be rejected, and the Trade In Services Act must be rejected, too.

    • There are about 5 treaties at issue here, sojourner. TTIP, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, was the one rejected in Europe. TPP, the Transpacific Partnership, is the one involving 12 Pacific countries that was signed in Auckland in February. If the US and Japan ratify it, it will go ahead. In addition, there are TISA (the Trade in Services Agreement), CETA (the EU-Canada Comprehensive Trade Agreement), and the RCEP (the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership). The latter is a free trade agreement initiated by China.

      They all accomplish pretty much the same thing – essentially forcing all participating countries to surrender their sovereignty to multinational corporations. All must be defeated.

    Go for it, guys! Wish I could be there!

  3. Thanks, Alan. We’re still doing our bit here in New Zealand trying to keep our National government from ratifying it – either that or electing a coalition of opposition parties next year that will repeal it.
