Rally and March Against the TPP

February 1st, Noon – 2PM

Corner of Swinton and Atlantic Avenues, Delray Beach FL

The day after an International Day of Action against the TPP, we will rally and march from a busy street corner through the local green market 2 blocks away. We will try to raise awareness about the risk of international corporate rule that we face with the TPP and the dangers of Fast Track authority.

If your not familiar with the TPP and Fast Track, here are some details on the dangers we face.

Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa sent a letter to members of Congress telling them what unions and fair trade advocates have known all along – fast track is the wrong track for America. He took aim at legislation introduced in both the House and Senate that calls for a quick up-or-down vote on trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) with little debate and no amendments.

“No member should underestimate our opposition to this very bad bill,” Hoffa told Congress. Teamsters stand ready to back up that claim with action. Let your elected officials know by contacting them and telling them workers won’t stand for bad trade deals that take away U.S. jobs and leave us with unsafe foods, higher medicine prices and less freedom than before.

And We Will Stand Up This Saturday

We will pass out flyers encouraging others to call their rep and use the TPP Occucards and our many signs/banners to inform.
