On September 22, 2013 activists in Washington, DC produced light projections with messages protesting the TPP.  The light projection was part of a weekend training produced by FlushTheTPP.org with trainers from the Backbone Campaign and Earth First!.  The TPP light projection was a done for the project #TPPMediaMarch which does actions every Tuesday night on twitter including twitter storms and twitter parties.

Protests against the TPP are growing across the country as President Obama refuses to share the contents of the Trans Pacific Partnership with the American people and is pushing to minimize the checks and balances of Congress by seeking “Fast Track.”  Secrecy and inadequate congressional oversight is the only way the Obama administration can pass this unpopular law.  A report last week by the Center for Economic and Policy Research found that if the TPP becomes law 90% of Americans will see their incomes decline and the wealth divide in the United States will expand.

Call your member of Congress and tell them to oppose Fast Track and demand that the administration make the TPP public.  Call 202-224-3121.  For more information on how to do a light projection visit here.
