Since Wednesday, March 11 at 9 pm Eastern/6 pm Pacific, we’ve been holding weekly calls to organize resistance to fast track legislation in Congress. The calls are being organized by Popular Resistance, the Rolling Rebellion, InterOccupy and the Green Shadow Cabinet. Now we will focus on organizing to stop the TPP.
On each call we provide an update, a speaker on a specific topic related to fast track and TPP/TTIP/TiSA and we hold breakout groups to focus on organizing.
You must register for the call. You will be given a specific personal identification number (PIN). This allows the moderator of the call to see that you are there and when you indicate that you want to speak.
All are welcome to the call. Please spread the word.
Here is the schedule:
