Labor and Grassroots Organizations Rally Today Against Trans-Pacific Partnership and Other 'Fast Track' Deals

WASHINGTON - As Congress pushes legislation to “fast track” the Trans-Pacific Partnership – a secretive agreement between government bureaucrats and more than 600 corporate lobbyists – a broad range of national labor unions and grassroots organizations will rally today against these measures. These organizations argue that “fast tracking” has been used to pass trade deals that kill jobs for America’s workers, lower wages, increase pay disparity and limit public discussion about key economic issues in our country.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
