The Peace Team/peaceteam.net: Stand Strong Against Fast Track and the TPP

Note and call to send a petition, links below, from The Peace Team at peaceteam.net (makers of Citizen United, the movie):

“Today the so-called Patriot Act as it was expired, proving yet again
that we can have any policy change we want if only you will continue
to speak out. Just one click of a mouse does it whenever we or anyone
else sends out an action alert. The more we speak out, the more
policy change we get.

Of course we knew that the fight to stop the secret corporate power
grab called the Trans Pacific Partnership was not over, and that the
real fight was always going to be in the US House.

Please keep speaking out:

No TPP Action Page: http://www.peaceteam.net/no_tpp.php

And here is the petition text:

At a time when the approval rating of Congress is barely 9%, do
members of the House, who are all up for re-election, really want to
push that number closer to zero, by waving through a secret trade
deal that is in reality mostly not at a trade deal at all?

Enough of the American people now know from leaks that the so-called
Trans Pacific Partnership is primarily about corporations seizing
unprecedented rights and powers, for example the right to sue for
“anticipated lost profits,” without the protections of the US legal
system.

What they are asking you to blindly wave through on a Fast Track
basis is the right for foreign business corporations to trump US
sovereignty and laws to protect us, not to mention the fact that even
as a trade deal it is the worst deal ever.

No more NAFTAs, especially not in such evil secrecy.

The Pen: Action Page: The Trans Pacific Partnership is Toxic and They Know It

Posting The Pen’s new letter and call to action re. TPP: Please click on the action page link below and sign to send a note to your Congress reps. and local newspaper.

*******************

Dear —-,

We are having an amazing impact on defeating the so-called Trans
Pacific Partnership, but only because tens of thousands of our own
participants, and many others, continue to speak out against it every
chance we get.

And we know we’re having an impact because John Boehner was on TV
Sunday morning literally begging for Hillary Clinton to throw her
support to it. Imagine that, begging for Democrats to help support
this toxic turkey, so fewer Republicans have to suffer the inevitable
blowback. Does this mean he would support Hillary Clinton for
president in return?

If you need to know more about why this thing is so bad, please read
the link in the petition text on the action page itself below about
the ties to multi-national corporations.

So let’s keep submitting and keep the pressure on:

TPP Is Toxic Action Page: http://www.peaceteam.net/tpp_toxic.php

And here is the petition text:

This last weekend the House Majority Leader said this on Meet The
Press about the so-called Trans Pacific Partnership:

“We’ve got the majority here in the House and the Senate, but we
can’t do this by ourselves.”

Since when did a party in total control of Congress not have the
power to pass anything they want?

And the answer is, since someone tried to browbeat members of the
House in particular into passing one of the most repulsive and
deceptive measures ever, to abdicate all meaningful congressional
authority over trade policy, and by top secret agreement to surrender
the interests of the American people to the tender mercies of
multi-national corporations.

This is one toxic hot potato. Drop it. And leave it dropped.
