FlushTheTPP.org is an action campaign to Stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
OCCUPY BELLINGHAM joined this fight in December 2012 at the Peace Arch for a cross border rally. We invite you to join.
OCCUPY BELLINGHAM worked hard to prevent the passage of “FAST TRACK”. Since it passed we now have our work cut out for us to defeat the entire TPP. This will be a heavy lift as Larsen, DelBene, Murray and Cantwell were in favor of FAST TRACK and very possibly will be in favor of the entire deal. In order to stop the TPP we need to act quickly and in solidarity with people in other countries. This massive trade agreement is a high priority for transnational corporations, and they are working fast to make it law.
A good web site to watch the news unravel is Flush the TPP. They will have the latest information and updates. And you will find out what actions are necessary. Stay tuned for latest actions from OCCUPY BELLINGHAM newsletter and Facebook page.
Since the “Battle in Seattle,” the World Trade Organization has had an impossible time moving forward, as was seen in the failure of the Millennial and Doha Rounds of the WTO. People also stopped the Free Trade Area of the Americas and the Multilateral Agreement on Investment. And at least 14 other corporate trade agreements have not been completed because of widespread public opposition. This is hopeful news, and together we can stop the TPP also, which will be a tremendous victory for the people against transnational corporate power!
Nothing could be more true
