Sat Feb 15 2014 Anti-TPP Rally in San Francisco Pressures Pelosi to Take Bolder Stance
Hundreds March and Rally Against Trans-Pacific Partnership On January 31, as part of an "International Day of Action" against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), protesters rallied in front of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's office in San Francisco's Federal Building and marched on Market Street. Protester numbers swelled during the march down Market Street, eventually reaching an estimated 500. Nancy Pelosi has said publicly that she has concerns about the TPP but she continues to avoid taking a bold stance against Fast Track and TPP that might make a difference in the legislation's chances.

Speakers from Food and Water Watch, Idle no More, and labor groups addressed demonstrators. Maira Sutton of the Electronic Frontier Foundation explained how the TPP endangers internet freedom and expands copyright penalties. For one thing the TPP, as drafted, regulates temporary copies. It treats temporary reproductions of copyrighted works as copyright infringement.
