A group of citizens who went to the US Trade Representative’s office yesterday to ask to read the text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal found the doors locked. “If this agreement were so good you’d be able to read it,” said Lloyd Doggett (D, TX), who joined the delegation of critics that included a faith leader, a nurse, an environmental activist, a veteran, a postal worker and a student. “Even though the administration has promised that this would be the most progressive, transparent trade deal in history, we still can’t see the text.” said AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler. To help stop Fast Track, call 1-855-712-8441 today, National Fast Track Call-In Day, and tell Congress to stop secret trade deals and oppose Fast Track.
