Congress: Don't betray democracy! No "Fast Track" for the TPP

Congress is pushing legislation right now that would "Fast Track" the Trans-Pacific Partnership -- a secretive agreement negotiated behind closed doors by government bureaucrats and more than 600 corporate lobbyists. It threatens everything you care about: democracy, jobs, the environment, and the Internet.

Stop the Sneak Attack on Democracy!

Week of Action against Fast Track for the TPP November 8 - 14, 2014

The #StopFastTrack week of action comes as President Obama and other heads of state head to Asia to push forward the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations.


It also comes as the Lame Duck session of Congress gets underway, with various Congressional leaders and corporate interest groups calling for Fast Track legislation to be considered then.

This is a time of year when a lot of people take a break after the elections, and start getting ready for the holidays, such that political accountability is very low. We need your help remaining vigilant so that Fast Track does not sneak through now or in early 2015.

ORGANIZATIONS ARE NEEDED TO:

* Endorse the week of action website StopFastTrack.com.

* Schedule an action alert urging your members to contact Congress between November 8 and 14.

* Sign up for the social media action team to receive sample Tweets, Facebook memes and whatever people use on Ello.

* Help organize and promote anti-Fast Track rallies during the week of action.

INDIVIDUALS ARE NEEDED TO:

* Contact Congress early and often expressing your opposition to Fast Track using the action tools at the top of this page.

* Sign up for the social media action team to receive sample Tweets, Facebook memes and Ello stuff.

* Write a Letter to the Editor calling on Congress to oppose Fast Track for the TPP.

* Help organize or attend an anti-Fast Track event in your community.
