A conversation with Robert Younger & Xiomara Castro
President Obama is expected to sign the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement in early February. At that point, a full blown debate gets underway in Congress … and in trade union halls, climate action forums, and in the streets. The grassroots effort to defeat TPP is expected to be even more intense than the historic efforts surrounding the NAFTA struggle of two decades ago.
Now that the full text of the agreement has been public for some time, we have a good idea of what’s in the trade agreement. And it’s not good. TPP is less about trade than it is about providing multinational corporations with their own private Bill of Rights.
At this month’s Other Voices forum, we’ll learn exactly what’s wrong with TPP. Even more importantly, we’ll learn what the grassroots strategies are and how everyone can get involved in the effort to force Congress to vote NO on TPP.
YOU are an important part of every Other Voices forum. The forum really is a conversation. So come prepared to ask questions or share your opinions.
