Dear Corporate Greed Resisters!
The Democratic Party platform committee refused to reject the TPP outright and chose instead to pass a weak and meaningless resolution outlining what trade ought to be (without saying that the TPP doesn't meet their criteria). In response, we are bringing a strong anti-TPP message to Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention.
If you will be there and you want to join us in the events, let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is the schedule so far:
Saturday, July 23, 2016
11 am: Workshop on Flush the TPP at The Peopleâ€™s Convention, Arch Street Friends Meeting House, 320 Arch Street, no air conditioning (be prepared). Click here for information.
