STOP FAST-TRACK: Congress: Don't betray democracy! No "Fast Track" for the TPP

Congress is pushing legislation right now that would "Fast Track" the Trans-Pacific Partnership -- a secretive agreement negotiated behind closed doors by government bureaucrats and more than 600 corporate lobbyists. It threatens everything you care about: democracy, jobs, the environment, and the Internet.

We oppose fast track because "free" trade = corporate rule. ... The TPP is the superhighway on the Road to Serfdom. It is the legislative structure that accelerates emerging Global Corporate Feudalism.

TPP will result in the same job losses, low wages and environmental degradation that we have seen from NAFTA.

Contrary to supreme court decisions, corporations are not persons and money is not speech. We must amend the U.S. constitution to that end. Read more. - STOP FAST TRACK - http://www.stopfasttrack.com/ !

See the many other reasons why WE oppose "Fast Track". More than 100 organizations oppose "Fast Track". Includes a list of links to some great progressive orgs, (many not listed over at HuffPo, etc.) - including:

ACTA

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.
