TPP Webinar Tonight - Rep. Jim McGovern Special Guest

Written by 

Our special guest tonight is Rep. Jim McGovern. Rep. McGovern has long been a friend to working people, an advocate for Fair Trade, and a champion for economic equality. We'll talk about the future of trade agreements, and get his take on the current state of TPP and Fast Track leading into Congress' recess week and the next round of TPP talks. Join the Webinar at http://www.anymeeting.com/moveforjustice1

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!)

    Standard-Bearer in Pivotal Arizona Congressional Race

    With early ballots in the mail, and only three weeks from the August 28th primary, State Senator David Schapira has emerged as the Democratic standard-bearer in a closely watched and increasingly nasty three-way congressional race in Arizona that many observers see as a litmus test for national Democratic chances to pick up critical seats in Congress.

    Endorsements are a funny thing. Most of them aren't worth anything at all. I have two friends running in the Democratic primary in Arizona's brand new 9th CD, Kyrsten Sinema and Andrei Cherny. Kyrsten is a progressive and Andrei is somewhere in his own world ideologically. But the third guy... well, he's the one who's been endorsed by Raúl-- and by PDA. Whomever wins the August 28th primary is, likelier than not, headed to Congress. That third guy is David Schapira, the Senate Democratic Leader.
