In the United States there has been widespread opposition to the recently introduced Fast Track bill. While Obama and corporate lobbyists are scrambling to bring more members of Congress onto their side, labor, environmentalists, food justice workers, internet freedom-fighters, health-workers, human rights advocates, and all opposed to an economy of greed and destruction continue to build momentum against this dangerous legislation. If we stop Fast Track, this would be a huge victory in the global fight to oppose massive corporate “trade” deals like TPP, TTIP, TISA, and CETA. However, it is not the only front in the struggle for a better world.
Beyond the U.S., the movement against this global corporate power grab is also growing. Internationally, people are fighting the same rigged “trade” agreements that we are in the U.S., but also other deals that do not involve the United States. On April 18th was Global Trade Day, an international day of action against the corporate “trade” agenda. Since then, groups continue to organize and take action in their own countries. Here is a sample of resistance from around the world.
