TUES, JAN 21: NATIONAL CALL TO END FAST TRACKING THE TPP AND FRACKING
Join Americans Against Fracking on a conference call to discuss how to stop a secret trade agreement that could jeopardize our efforts to ban fracking. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a terrible trade deal being negotiated by the governments of a dozen countries -- including ours -- and could effectively remove our ability to ban fracking anywhere in the United States by putting the rights of corporations above the rights of people and their communities.
