Stop Fast Track and the Trans-Pacific Partnership!

A good short primer from Robert Reich on the need to stop Fast Track and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a project of the Obama administration fervently desired by big business, supported by Republicans, and would lock in corporate control over the global economy against the interests of workers and consumers.  It has been negotiated behind doors closed to all citizens except 500 corporate lobbyists.  “Fast-Track” Trade Promotion Authority would permit the agreement to be speedily voted up or down by Congress without adequate debate or the possibility of amendment.
CWA and MoveOn have partnered in a petition against Fast Track and the TPP, which you can read and sign at  http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/tell-congress-we-cant?source=c.em&r_by=4842589
