On February 4, 2016, Stop the TPP-Michigan folks weathered the cold and snow to gather outside the General Motors World Headquarters to raise their  voices against the toxic and oppressive trade deal, the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership.) They listened to speakers and then marched to the Transcending Labor’s Legacy monument, for a candle-lit vigil and community, where they announced upcoming actions and ways to resists corporate power grabs such as this.

This deal, and others like it blatantly favor corporate rights over workers rights, indeed the sovereignty of nations and citizens alike. The impact such a trade deal would have if passed, would be disastrous for U.S. workers, the environment, and the people at large. No more profits over people!!

February 4th marked the first day Pres. Obama can sign the TPP into law, per fast track legislation. But we still have a chance. We can still apply pressure. Especially when and if this goes to congress. This campaign is just beginning, but our resistance is needed NOW.
