Here's a new petition to our representatives and senators from DIY.RootsAction.org:

If you don't oppose and vote against the Trans-Pacific Partnership, I will not vote for you in any future primary or general election in which you are a candidate.

Please sign it here.

The House and Senate have both rammed through Fast Track. Neither house has yet taken up the TPP.

Find the senators and House members who voted for Fast Track at this link.

We always said that passing Fast Track would virtually guarantee passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. But it doesn't absolutely guarantee it.

One way to possibly help stop it would be to pull out a seldom-used tactic in the United States that is indispensible in other nations. We could threaten consequences at the polling place for TPP supporters.

Yes, we do know that in some small percentage of cases this could end up meaning that you've committed to not voting for someone who faces in a future election someone else who looks even worse. But by passing the TPP, Congress would be giving the power to overturn its own laws to corporations. Should we risk letting that happen in order to avoid a small percentage of races facing lesser-evil problems?

The TPP is NAFTA on steroids, economically and environmentally destructive at home and abroad. Most of it has nothing to do with trade, but is rather about empowering banks and corporations with powers that couldn't be passed separately or transparently because they're too terrible and unpopular.

It's time we take a stand. Click here to sign this petition:


If you don't oppose and vote against the Trans-Pacific Partnership, I will not vote for you in any future primary or general election in which you are a candidate.

After signing the petition, please forward this message to your friends. You can also share it from the webpage after taking the action yourself.
