On Thursday, 7/23, three of the most corrupt politicians , Ron Wyden (the income gap), Orrin Hatch, and Paul Ryan received an award at the Washington International Trade Association “Trade Prom” for leading the charge to pass Fast Track against the will of tens of millions of people in the United States. In addition to the reward, these corporate stooges received millions of dollars for passing the anti-democratic Fast Track legislation. For this massive betrayal of planet and people everywhere these politicians do not deserve anyone’s support in upcoming elections and they should be heavily protested.
This started at the WITA event on Thursday when a number of groups got together outside of the event as wealthy “free” traders entered the Ronald Regan building in Washington DC, a fitting location for this award ceremony. Here are more pictures from the protest.

Now that Fast Track has passed through a totally corrupt Congress it’s time to stop the actual treaties of global corporate expansion, the TransPacific Partnership (TPP), Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and Trade in Services agreement (TiSA). We are looking to get more people involved in this critical battle. If you are interested in helping out in any way email: [email protected]org and join the biweekly national phone calls.

Speak!
