The TPP threatens laws and regulation designed to protect public health, financial transparency, food safety, workers rights, the climate and the environment. It allows governments to be sued by corporations for lost profit as a result of these ordinances. Yet labor, environmental, health care, internet/free press, climate justice, green energy and democracy organizations were excluded from negotiations, and, under fast track, can't work with legislators to amend the text of the agreement.

It is time to build a democratic movement of resistance. It is time to start right where we live, in our own community. It is time to say to our US trade representative, our members of Congress, and the corporations that had a place at the negotiations denied to the people.
