“FREE” TRADE IS NOT FAIR TRADE

Stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP. 

It is up to all of us to learn about this latest deal and call our Washington DC representatives to STOP FAST TRACK.  Our national legislators hope to ram this through during the lame duck session of congress.

The FAST TRACK web site is here.  From this site you can automatically connect with your district legislators.

OCCUPY BELLINGHAM is a sponsor of this action and you can see this for yourself here.

The following video is a short 2 minute summary of the deal and some of its consequences.

THERE IS GOOD NEWS IN THIS ELECTION

Not only did many municipalities throughout the country pass legislation asking for an overturning of Citizens United and getting money out of politics but in Tallahassee, Florida another exciting vote occurred which you can read about below.

On Nov. 4th, 2014, voters in Tallahassee, Florida made history by approving the first city Anti-Corruption Act in the United States by an overwhelming 2 – 1 margin.

A small but dedicated group of progressives, conservatives, and independents put aside their differences to wage an historic battle against corruption in their community, and they won.

They weren’t afraid to call the money pouring into our political system what it is: corruption. They went all in with comprehensive reforms instead of settling for half measures. And they did it all by sidestepping entrenched politicians and putting a citizen initiative directly on the ballot — no politicians required, just we, the People.

LINKS ARE MOVING

There has been some thought about how best to inform our OCCUPY BELLINGHAM web browsers about who we are, what we stand for and what we are doing.  One of the methods we use is to encourage folks to stay informed on a myriad of issues, not only by attending meetings and participating in actions but by reading.  That’s what the links on the left side of the page are about.  

  • Quick referrals to other web sites that can inform you about other groups,
  • Important information about our OCCUPY BELLINGHAM various campaigns

You can view all these issues that we care about and demand action for on the menu bar under “ABOUT”.   There we list our vision, mission and demands.  

We are in the process of moving this categorized information to the top menu bar under LINKS.  When we have this completed you will see a larger space for the blog portion of the web site and possibly some changes there as well.

Stay tuned!

Website upgraded to WordPress 4.0

This major upgrade to the software we use for our website does not appear, so far, to change anything visible to users in our historical content.

There are lots of improvements under the hood that give content creators enhanced options.  As these options are used, there may be “look and feel” differences that users see in new content.
