SAY “NO” TO FAST TRACK: Send your message to Congress now!
Right now, the world’s wealthiest corporate interests are pressuring Congress for more power, less oversight, and their very own “Fast Track” for international business. But the legislation they’re pushing goes far beyond streamlining procedures – in fact, this Fast Track proposal would cut out the public entirely and allow a small group of worldwide powerbrokers to decide international trade agreements while operating in total secrecy.
We're calling on Congress to stand up against Fast Track for trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a massive trade deal that the United States is currently negotiating with a dozen countries in extreme secret. Shockingly, this enormous trade deal – covering 40 percent of the world’s gross domestic product – is being negotiated by former corporate lobbyists, with little information available to the public about the impact on jobs, the environment, and our economy. That’s why some critics have been calling it “NAFTA on steroids.”
Send your message to Congress now!
To [Your U.S. Representative],
As your constituent, I ask you to reject the Fast Tracked legislation for trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Previous fast-tracked trade deals like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) have cost our state hundreds of thousands of good-paying, middle-class jobs and have led to an array of disastrous environmental outcomes ranging from a jump in greenhouse gas emissions to increased pesticide use to deforestation.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
