Northampton folks gathered in front of City Hall to raise awareness of the TPP.

Facebook page here.

Join an international solidarity effort against the Trans-Pacific Partnership aka The #CorporateCoup!! Our effort will be focused on raising awareness to others regarding the leaked 30 chapters (https://www.mfat.govt.nz/en/about-us/who-we-are/treaty-making-process/trans-pacific-partnership-tpp/text-of-the-trans-pacific-partnership) by distributing information outlining the consequences of the text, speaking with people on the streets, and any other way you can imagine to facilitate collective action to stop this corporate power grab! This event is still evolving, and we are open to any help with organizing and building this movement. So please, let us know your thoughts! We will update this page with a more definitive schedule as it manifests. Thank you!

Peace, Love, & Solidarity

“On February 4, 2016, President Obama will be permitted by Fast Track law to sign the TransPacific Partnership (TPP). During the recent APEC meeting in Manila, Philippines, leaders of TPP countries discussed holding a signing ceremony that day in New Zealand.

Following the signing, Congress will still have to pass implementing legislation before the TPP can be put into place. The Obama administration is currently writing that legislation and is expected to send it to Congress as soon as it anticipates having enough votes to pass it. That can happen any time after Obama signs the TPP.

The TPP implementing legislation could be sent to Congress as early as February 5 and as late as after the elections in the fall. It all depends on when Obama and leadership believe they have the votes.

Our job is to make sure that never happens. And that is why we are mobilizing local actions across the country in February. We hope that our allies in TPP countries are making similar plans, but as the most aggressive promoter of the TPP, the US is where it must be stopped!”
