Rally at the offices of Oregon Senator Ron Wyden, the new Finance Committee Chair, encouraging him to not introduce a new version of Fast Track that could sneak the job-killing Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement through Congress without meaningful debate or amendments.|
Fast Track Is A Flop! [video] Fast Track is an obsolete, undemocratic process that needs to go the way of the dinosaurs!
Organized by Oregon Fair Trade Campaign, the rally was moderated by Elizabeth Swagger and featured two speakers who spoke about TPP from the perspective of small business and displaced high tech workers.
Following the rally, Elizabeth and others entered the building and sought to deliver thousands of floppy disks signed by citizens opposing both the TPP and Fast Track.
During that interval various citizens took the bull horn and addressed the crowd addressing the Trans Pacific Partnership effects on national sovereignty, jobs, the environment, cost of life saving medicines, as well as several others.
