Defeat the Trans Pacific Partnership!(TPP)

The 1% are planning to limit our governments' power to regulate in the public interest. The TPP is a threat to democracy, undermining national sovereignty, workers' rights, environmental protections and Internet freedom. We urge you to reject this corporate takeover. We are the 99%!

ORFTC has endorsed the historic Cross-Border Organizing Summit & Rally against the
Trans-Pacific Partnership taking place along the U.S./Canada border in Blaine, Washington on Saturday, December 1. at Peace Arch Park in Blaine, Washington.  Starts with rally at 1pm and organizing summit at 2 . 
The Blaine summit and rally’s organizing partners include the AFL-CIO, Citizens Trade Campaign, Council of Canadians, Sierra Club and over a dozen other local social justice organizations.  It’s timed with a similar event along the U.S./Mexico border, and will be kicking off an exciting new tri-national campaign on the TPP just prior to Mexico and Canada’s first round of TPP negotiations, which take place from December 3 – 12 in Auckland, New Zealand.

Help stop the largest corporate power grab in ten years! The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is bad for working people. 

Join hands with Canadian, Mexican, and American Trade Justice Advocates from the labor, environmental, family farm, immigrant-rights, internet freedom, occupy, peace and social justice movements to help launch an historic new tri-national campaign to defeat the TPP.
