Ask your member of Congress to commit to voting NO on the TPP!
CONGRESSIONAL CALL IN DAY:
Call 1-888-701-6507 now and tell your Representative to vote NO on the toxic TPP!
Hi, my name is Patricia and I live in San Diego.
I'm calling to ask my representative to commit to voting NO on the TPP trade deal that endangers our climate and empowers big polluters. I oppose this corporate trade deal and the underhanded attempts to push this deal through in the last days of Congress.
Unless we act now, one of the last acts of the Obama Administration and this Congress may be approving the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). For a President that has otherwise been a leader on climate issues, this would be an incredible disappointment. We can't, and won't, let that happen.
As opposition to the corporate trade deal continues to grow, its supporters are planning a last-ditch attempt to pass the trade agreement during the lame duck session of Congress -- after voters have gone to the polls in November.
Call 1-888-701-6507 now and ask your representative to commit to voting no on the TPP!
Ramming through an unpopular trade deal in the final days of the Congress would be a disaster for our climate. Though trade can significantly increase climate-disrupting emissions, the TPP text fails to even mention the words "climate change."
The TPP would also undermine efforts to address climate disruption and keep fossil fuels in the ground. It empowers multinational fossil fuel firms like TransCanada to use the investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) system to challenge environmental safeguards in private trade tribunals.
Under the TPP, the U.S. Department of Energy would also be required to automatically approve all exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to TPP countries -- leading to increased fracking, greater air and water pollution, and additional health risks.
Some Representatives are still deciding whether or not to support this toxic trade deal. This national call in day is designed to keep the pressure on and make sure our members of Congress know their constituents oppose this toxic deal!
Call your representative now at 1-888-701-6507 and ask him or her to oppose the TPP and underhanded attempts to push the trade deal through in the final days of this Congress.
Patricia, the grassroots opposition to this corporate trade deal has been inspiring. We're on the cusp of a huge victory, but that could all be snatched away with a rushed vote in Congress.
