We urge you to publicly oppose Fast Track for the TPP. We need a new, transparent, accountable, and democratic process.
Why can’t our trade negotiators deliver a trade policy that raises living standards in communities at home and abroad? Following the 2014 elections the U.S. government is going to make a push to pass the new mega-trade agreement, the Trans Pacific Partnership, using Fast Track. This agreement, negotiated by corporate lobbyists while the public is kept in the dark, threatens everything from food safety and access to medicines to green energy policy, internet freedom, and labor rights. We need a new, transparent, accountable, and democratic process, not an antiquated and extreme Fast Track procedure. Help us send a message that Washingtonians want trade policy that lifts up people and the planet, not just the corporate bottom line!
We urge you to publicly oppose Fast Track. We insist that any new process is transparent and reflects our democratic principles as a country, where Congress has a clear role in selecting trade partners, sets mandatory negotiating objectives, and certifies that those objectives have been met before trade negotiations can conclude.
