As part of his State of the Union address, President Obama announced his attention to revive Fast Track, the dangerous legislation that would give him authority to negotiate international trade treaties like the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) without debate or approval from Congress. Despite Obama’s promises to negotiate fair treaties, most groups advocating for working families, public health, sustainable and fair agriculture, and the environment believe these free trade agreements will be a disaster as written. With corporate lobbyists the only advisors, a precedent of unfair trade agreements, and almost no transparency, it is difficult to believe otherwise.
In response, thousands of people are calling Congress to tell them to stop Fast Track in its tracks. Will you join the call?
