The Trans-Pacific Partnership

Public must fight the trade deal

With President Obama calling for completion of Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations by October, it’s crucial that we raise public awareness right now.

The TPP can only become reality if the public remains unaware and does not demand that Congress stop this attack on our basic rights.

We all must fight this insidious undermining of basic human dignity, health, and happiness. We can’t fight if we don’t know the enemy is about to pounce.

Joe Ravenscroft, Seattle
