The Fast Track vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement could take place in the first few weeks of January. Senator Baucus and House Ways and Means Chair Camp will file their Fast Track bill as soon as Congress re-convenes in January (around Jan. 8). 151 House Democrats and 23 Republicans have pledged to oppose the bill but more votes are needed. To stop Fast Track at least another 40 Representatives must vote NO - that's 180 Democrats and 50 Republicans total. THIS IS NOW A RACE AGAINST THE CLOCK!

This Is What Democracy Looks Like, a co-production of the Independent Media Center and Big Noise Films, weaves the footage of over 100 videographers into a gripping document of what really happened on Seattle's streets. The film cuts through the confusion and tear gas to paint an intimate, passionate portrait of a week that changed the world. This Is What Democracy Looks Like was the first documentary to capture the raw energy of the WTO protests, while clarifying their global and historic significance. Watch the trailer at //tradejustice.net/demfilm.
