With a vote on a revised NAFTA 2.0 in the works and even a possible NAFTA pullout on the table, it is becoming evident that we the people more than ever must elect a congress committed to a fair trade agenda. Last year’s TPP rebellion at the Democratic National Convention illustrated that trade justice is a potent electoral issue, not to be ignored by those who claim to represent us.
Though Trump likes to claim he killed TPP, the reality was that the movement for fair trade stood up against corporate power and made sure the votes for TPP weren’t there.
We the people will send a message to all our representatives in the House and Senate that they must unite for social, environmental and economic justice and reject trade that fails to put people and the planet above corporate profit. Their futures in D.C. depend on it in 2018 and beyond.
At a time when the planet is teetering on the verge of climate disaster, and social polarity is at an all time high, related to global capital, Trade Justice Alliance is pleased to welcome special guest speakers well-versed in the narrative of progressive change and in holding corrupt officials accountable.
Our guest speakers are progressive champion, and early campaigner for fair trade, Tim Canova, Law Professor, Nova Southeastern and Founder, Progress for All.
Victor Tiffany, Founder, Revolt Against Plutocracy and the Bernie or Bust Campaign;
Andrea Miller, Executive Director, People Demanding Action will be the moderator for this webinar;
and we look forward to an action update from Popular Resistance (formerly flush the TPP) on their actions at the US Trade Rep's office and more.
