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
KEEP LEARNING FOLKS AND CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES
We need your help to get this petition on the ballot.
GMOP is a high priority for OCCUPY wall street BELLINGHAM and many of us are working as volunteers for this campaign.
After all, we may need some of it for that far future, if the human species lives that long.

Petitions with 120,000 signatures opposing the US Navy request to develop electromagnetic warfare in sites around the forests on the Olympic Peninsula were recently delivered to the Forest Service. This would mean periodic unannounced closures of portions of Olympic National Forest for war games, testing and training. Up to 118 Growler jets flying over Olympic Peninsula communities 260 days/year, 8-16 hours/day, day or night, in 5,000 “events”/year. The Navy has not defined “event”. Growlers fly in groups of three. This could mean 15,000 flights/year. Currently there are 1250 flights/year. The Navy must define “event”. Growlers, the loudest Navy jet, can produce 150 db, enough to cause instantaneous hearing loss. Navy statistics say they produce 113 db at an altitude of 1000 feet, well above the 85 db threshold for permanent hearing loss. Growlers can fly at 1200 feet above ground level in some areas of the Olympic Peninsula. With three Growlers flying together, local noise levels will be worse.
