Bay Area Freedom Socialist Party monthly meeting
TPP, President Obama’s baby, is one of the most far-reaching trade agreements on the planet, involving 12 nations, 700 million people and $26 trillion in economic activity. Congress is expected to ratify it this Fall. The partnership is a subject of the Presidential campaign, with Trump opposing it for jingoist reasons and Clinton switching sides to come out against it. What is this agreement that was drafted in secret, influenced by some 600 lobbyists from corporations and industry associations? Why is it bad news for the environment, for labor, for anyone who needs affordable medications and healthy food? Learn more about this trade deal and why you should just say NO TPP!
Home-cooked brunch is served at 12:15pm for a donation of $8-10.
