Awareness and opposition to the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) are growing, as its would-be member nations have just signed it.
Click here to join our friends at OpenMedia in seizing the moment to end efforts by governments to ratify it.
Out-of-touch Trade Ministers and bureaucrats just ignored millions of Internet users and signed the TPP at an Auckland casino.
And get this: New Zealand police engaged in intimidation by knocking on the doors of "known activists" in the lead-up to the signing, demanding to know about any plans to protest the trade deal's extreme censorship plan.
The deal may be signed, but lawmakers still need to ratify it for it to become law. In some countries, the TPP could be ratified in a matter of months.
This means the final struggle over the TPP starts right now -- and we need to act fast to win the debate before the U.S. Congress can ratify.
Click here to support a renewed movement to have major impacts on public consultations, build an international action kit, and support our allies across the globe so we can block this lousy agreement once and for all.
Our job is clear: to expose the truth about this bad agreement to as many people as possible and empower them to be heard before Congress officially debates the TPP.
But we need you to join us now so we can build up our Fair Deal coalition and jam the national debate to turn public opinion against the TPP.
We've been battling the TPP for years as it was negotiated behind closed doors, and we watched as industry lobbyists got special access while people like you were shut out.
Those same lobbyists are now pressuring to lock the undemocratic TPP into place.
It’s clear by now that the Government will go ahead with the TPP unless enough of us speak out to stop it, as we have stopped other corporate trade agreements in the past.
We can stop this together but we need to go all-out.
This work is only possible with your financial support. Please chip in $3 now.
