Support Rock Against The TPP

From Fight For The Future:

I’m really worried. Our Rock Against the TPP tour has been generating widespread public outcry, but President Obama just said that he’s still planning to try to ram the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) through Congress after the election.

We’re plotting with some major celebrities for a final showdown, a huge educational concert / protest in Washington, DC that will generate massive media attention and help make the TPP too politically toxic to pass. Right now we’re less than $20,000 short of the budget we need to make this happen. If everyone reading this chips in, we’ll have the funds we need, and can start reserving a venue and making this huge.

Can you help us make history and stop the TPP?

Pro-TPP corporations and politicians are kicking their lobbying efforts into high gear. Big cable companies, Hollywood, the pharmaceutical industry, and Wall Street banks are all pushing to get this toxic deal approved.

We need to expand our campaign right now or the TPP could become law in a matter of months. Will you chip in $5 toward the biggest mobilization yet to stop it?

The TPP would pave the way for Internet censorship, give multinational corporations and unaccountable government officials more control of our lives, and devastate our economy.

The extreme secrecy around the TPP makes it so that way too many people still have no idea what it is. Our Rock Against the TPP celebrity roadshow has been helping sound the alarm, educating thousands of people and dragging this anti-democratic backroom deal out into the sunlight.

But given the President’s latest remarks, I’m terrified that unless we step up our efforts, we’re going to lose and they’re going to sneak the TPP through before the end of this year.

We can’t let that happen. Will you chip in $5 to fight the TPP?

We still have a very real chance of stopping this. But only if we all come together right now.

Thanks for all that you’re doing,

-Evan at Fight for the Future
