The Trans Pacific Partnership is a secretly negotiated deal that will give unprecedented power to multinational corporations, including Monsanto, Dow and DuPont, and put everything from food safety to environmental regulations to your freedom to use the internet at risk.
And not only that, its supporters want to ram it through Congress using something called “Fast Track,” so it doesn’t get the scrutiny it deserves.
This letter to Congress, signed by about 100 organizations including OCA, outlines the many ways TTP will negatively impact the U.S. food and farming system.
It’s up to us to derail Fast Track. You can help by participating in the upcoming Saturday, April 18 National Day of Action against Fast Track.
It’s been done before. Citizens and consumers have defeated similar corporate power grabs like the Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAI), the Millennial Round of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) and even past attempts at Fast Track—as recently as 2014.
Together, we can do it again.
