Banding together to stop the TPP

deb smCCI Action Fund members have joined with Communications Workers of America (CWA) and other allies in labor and the community to expose the disastrous impacts of the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

First there was Citizens United, and then McCutcheon v. FEC. Rounding out the corporate power trifecta is the TPP.

We know it’s going to take a broad and diverse coalition of groups and everyday people to fight back against the 1%’s latest attempt to hi-jack our democracy.

That’s why we’ve partnered with CWA and other allies to co-sponsor teach-ins on the TPP. Steve Abbott, president of the CWA Iowa State Council, has facilitated discussions on what we need to know-or what little we do know-about the secret trade deal corporations and the 1% don’t want us to know about.

If enacted, the TPP could take away our power to enact regulations to protect our environment, our food and our workplaces if they stand in the way of corporate profit. It’s up to all of us to spread the word and build a critical mass of opposition to this attack on our democracy.
