Expressway To Trade Hell TPP by The People's Email Network

Dear Friends and Activists,

As promised, tonight we launch a massive new letters to the editor initiative against fast track treatment for the so-called Trans Pacific Partnership, a proposal so bad members of Congress risk going to prison if they even try to tell us what's in it. But from leaked documents we know it's all about giving corporations veto power over national laws on pollution, on labor, on privacy, and everything else.



For more detailed information on this issue there are numerous supporting reference links on the action page itself.

BEGIN NEW PETITION:

As if the last session of Congress didn't get little enough done, the first thing some members of Congress want to push for in the next is to completely abdicate their constitutional duty to make trade policy, by fast tracking the so-called Trans Pacific Partnership without a second thought.

Why should a member of Congress have to risk going to prison just to tell us what is being secretly negotiated behind our backs? Why do we have to find out only from leaked documents that they are trying to give corporations veto power over the national laws of any country on pollution, labor, privacy and everything else?

Thankfully, 151 wise and dutiful members of the House have already signed the Rosa L. DeLauro letter, 22 members have signed the Walter B. Jones letter, and 12 members have signed the John B. Larson letter, protesting this fast track proposal. This is not a partisan issue.

For the rest:

We, the people, demand that you immediately make a like commitment in writing to oppose any consideration of the terms of the Trans Pacific Partnership not conducted in the full light of day on the floors of the U.S. Congress.

In particular, we, the people, demand that members of the Senate demonstrate parallel leadership to put a majority of senators on the record in writing opposing fast track for the TPP.

Did we mention, this is an election year?

The above is the actual text of the petition sent by the link also above. As you know from our last alert we have just freshly revamped and updated our letters to the editor function, and there is a special innovation on this action page we have created especially for this campaign.
