Seattle, WA starting at 4:30 pm at Westlake Center
President Obama will be in Seattle on Friday, June 24 for a private fundraiser for Gov. Jay Inslee at the WA state Convention Center.
We will meet at WESTLAKE CENTER at 4:30 PM and walk three blocks to the Convention Center with our signs and banners to tell President Obama that the TPP is a public betrayal for the benefit of the corporate few. The picket line will be from approximately 5:00 to 6:00 PM.
While a majority of Democrats in Congress fought to defeat TPA, or fast track, and are commited to opposing any effort to pass the Trans Pacific Partnership trade agreement (TPP), President Obama and some WA state Democrats have betrayed us in supporting this corporate “free” trade deal.
Many Democratic members of Congress will be attending the fundraiser. It’s important for us to remind both them and President Obama that ordinary citizens reject these toxic trade deals and will hold them accountable.
