NEED YOUR HELP ON TPP

Watch this and send it out to your Facebook friends.  Then call your Washington DC lawmakers (Larsen, DelBene, Murray and Cantwell) and demand that they OPPOSE the TPP.  Patty Murray is running for reelection this year – maybe she can be convinced if we let her know we will not support her if she votes for it!

STILL OPPOSING THE TPP – HELP US

Robert Reich is a person who can tell you about the TPP in a very short time.

Local people have met with Rick Larsen in a town Hall and Suzan DelBene in 2 small meetings to voice our opposition to the TPP.  Will it help?  Time will tell.  

We held banners and yelled slogans in front of the Federal Building in Seattle while a meeting was held upstairs with Murray and Cantwell staff.

You can help by calling your representatives and tell them to

VOTE NO ON TPP.  

That’s all you have to say.

Rep Suzan DelBene (425) 483-1500

Rep Rick Larsen (425) 252-3188

Senator Patty Murray (206) 553-5545

Senator Maria Cantwell (425) 259-6515

KEEP THE OIL IN THE GROUND

This is also relevant to the newest Dirty Trade Deal that attempts to convince us that the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) will protect the environment but there is really nothing in the document that says it will prevent this kind of corporate activity.

Stop the TPP – call your representative NOW!  

Tell them to vote NO on the TPP.

TPP- THE END OF DEMOCRACY?

OCCUPY WALL STREET – BELLINGHAM (OWS-BELLINGHAM) has been opposing TPP and all other dirty trade deals for the past 3 years. We lost on FAST TRACK and now the final TPP deal is struck which Obama will sign on February 4.

Then the clock starts ticking for the congress to vote on it – either an up or down vote.  Our elected officials will have no opportunity to amend, add protections, or change the document written by over 600 multinational corporations and the leaders of 12 nations.

THIS IS NOT DEMOCRACY

Yes, That’s right – Congressman Rick Larsen wants to meet with us and hear what we have to say for or against the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership)  He will be in Bellingham on Friday, November 13 at the City of Bellingham Council Chambers at 5:30 – 7 pm

OCCUPY WALL STREET BELLINGHAM will have a rally at 5:00 prior to the meeting.

To get warmed up – here is a letter OCCUPY member Dianne wrote and read during the “stop the FAST TRACK” shoe drop a few months ago.
