Biggest Corporate Take Over Attempt Ever? Yep. That’s why we need to Stop the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership), known as NAFTA on steroids.

Join us to find out more about this secret trade agreement being pushed by US Trade Representatives on 12 countries — but who are they representing? Apparently hundreds of corporations at secret negotiations. Prof. Pamela Samuelson of UC Berkeley Law School said this about TPP, "Our democracy is at risk if these officials can commit the US to a policy that would require Congress to change our laws without the benefit of public debate and input from all affected parties.”

The Fast Track process for the TPP is expected to be pushed on Congress before they adjourn for the Holiday Season. Join us to find out what’s it’s about and how to help Stop Fast Track and dump the TPP.

Talk given by Joyce M. Eden from the Label GMO campaign.
