Tell Congress to Say NO to Monsanto and the TPP!
BREAKING: We just got word that a final deal has been cut in Washington DC between corporate lobbyists and the U.S. Senate to move forward with the Fast Track agreement for the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the disastrous trade deal that will destroy our basic democratic rights to protect corporate profits! Tragically, the TPP could make make it illegal to label GMOs is the U.S. and Europe.
Right now 600 corporate lobbyists are working furiously behind closed doors in Congress, trying to close the deal on the TPP – a massive trade deal so secret that most members of Congress have never even been allowed to read the details of the agreement. If allowed to pass, the TPP could outlaw GMO labeling and even county bans on GMOs and Monsanto’s toxic cancer-causing products.
Just as we are on the verge of winning GMO labeling in the US, these secret negotiations could eliminate the ability of countries around the world to label GMOs or impose common sense restrictions on the sale of genetically engineered seed and food in their countries if Monsanto and other biotech companies get their way.
Demand an end to secret trade deals, stop the fast track of the TPP. Stand with Food Democracy Now! - don't let corporations pass the Global Monsanto Protection Act on steroids!
A copy of your letter of support will be delivered to President Obama, your Members of Congress and U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman:
Dear President Obama, members of Congress and U.S. Trade Representative Froman,
The rules of democracy should not be rewritten behind closed doors!
I'm alarmed by the effort to Fast Track the secret trade agreement for the TPP through Congress, which not only undermines Congress’ constitutional authority over trade, but will allow corporate lobbyists to erode our basic democratic rights without a proper public debate.
Please make these negotiations public and allow participation in an open and transparent manner.
I ask that you put an end to the secrecy behind these trade agreement negotiations.
