Tools for Organizing Creative Actions 4

Across the country and internationally people are rising up against a trio of corporate rigged “trade” treaties: the TransPacific Partnership (TPP), the TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA).  Together these secret deals represent an enormous power grab by the world’s largest and most dangerous multinational corporations. They will impact every aspect of our lives (see issue-specific info below) and they must be stopped!

In June, 2015 the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives passed a Fast Track bill that makes it easier to pass these gargantuan treaties through Congress (no amendments, no filibuster, limited time for debate, and only an up or down vote) after years of secret negotiation. Obama quickly signed the antidemocratic Fast Track process into law and is now working hard to finalize the first of the three deals, the TPP.

First on our agenda is stopping the TPP (which could potentially derail the other deals too). The treaty is nearly complete and member nations could sign on this summer, meaning the TPP is likely to come to Congress this fall!

We also know from the Fast Track fight that we need to escalate–phone calls, emails, visits and rallies were not enough to stop Fast Track for the global corporate agenda and they will not be enough to stop TPP, TTIP, & TiSA. Just like when we stopped the Free trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) agreement and the Multi-lateral Agreement on investments (MAI) we need to get organized, continue to build a new mass anti-corporate globalization movement, and escalate to stop the global corporate coup.
