Fight for the Future, a digital rights organization, and legendary guitarist Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave are teaming up to organize a nationwide road show to raise awareness about the dangers of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
CWA is sponsoring the roadshow along with Citizens Trade Campaign, Demand Progress, Public Citizen, the Sierra Club and others. Through a series of concert events, protests, and teach-ins, this diverse coalition will reach huge numbers of people who have never heard of the TPP before.
"We are excited about building even more opposition to the TPP, with the support of all these new voices," said CWA District 7 Vice President Brenda Roberts.
The TPP trade deal has been negotiated in total secrecy with hundreds of corporate lobbyists helping draft the text. It poses a grave threat to good paying jobs, the environment, Internet freedom, food safety, and our democratic process.
