Kian Frederick from Public Citizen will be with us first, to address likely timing of a “Smart Track” bill by Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden. He tested the waters in hearings last week but we don't know what he's proposing so for now we're in "watch and wait" mode. We will continue to oppose any form of "Fast Track" – a process used to push secret backroom business deals through Congress with little debate and no amendments. Because you've asked, we will also touch on the recently leaked Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) text.
Emilianne Slaydon from TPP Media March will share details for this Tuesday's TPP Twitter storm (spoiler alert: the theme is "The World Trade Cup!") Tweets are up 24-7 – click to copy and paste: bit.ly/TPPMediaMarch
The Battle for Public Opinion Rages on: PDA's Co-Executive Director Andrea Miller will bring us up to date on "Countdown to Coverage," our fight to get mainstream newspapers and other media to tell the truth about "free trade."
Our CWA allies have a plan for countering the latest TPP "Love Letter" from the Denver Post editorial, and Dave Felice with CWA should be on hand to fill us in – and encourage other cities to follow this example.
PLUS: We'll share a link to a new activist toolkit from Public Citizen for your July 4 recess week actions (it goes live Monday afternoon - just in time you're your district office meetings Tuesday through Thursday!)
