Corporations like Monsanto and Cargill want to ram secret international trade deals through Congress using a process called “fast track.”
Why the secrecy? And what’s the rush?
These trade deals will give corporations unprecedented power to sue entire countries in order to undermine existing (and future) food safety and GMO labeling laws, and city, state, county and countrywide bans on GMO crops, pesticides and fracking.
OCA has joined the Citizens Trade Campaign, and other organizations, in asking our members to join the #StopFastTrack Week of Action, Nov. 8 – 14! What can you do to make the #StopFastTrack Week of Action successful?
Sign our action alert (below), then follow up with a phone call to your Congress member. Write a letter to the editor of your local paper. Post our action alert on Facebook. Organize or participate in a #StopFastTrack event in your community. Join the “Thunderclap,” a type of online flash mob. (What is Thunderclap)?
Make no mistake. These international trade deals are a blatant attack on democracy—which is why corporations want to ram them through Congress, without respect for any of the normal checks and balances. Unless we derail their plans.
TAKE ACTION: Don’t Let Congress ‘Fast-Track’ Dangerous Trade Deals! Find your Congress Member, then call (202) 224-3121 and ask to speak to him or her.
