A mass mobilization in Washington, DC from November 14th to 18th has been announced to begin the next stage of the campaign to stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The TPP was made public 10 days from the actions.

The protest, co-sponsored by 59 organizations, is being spearheaded by Popular Resistance and Flush The TPP and includes environmental, human rights, labor, climate change and good government groups. They have been organizing this mobilization for months knowing that the TPP would be made public around this time.

“At its root, the TPP is about modern colonialism. It is the way that Western governments and their transnational corporations, including Wall Street banks, can dominate the economies of developing nations,” said Margaret Flowers, co-director of Popular Resistance. She continued “The reality is that without trade justice there cannot be climate justice, food justice; there cannot be health justice or wage justice. That is why people are mobilizing to stop the TPP.”

Mackenzie McDonald Wilkins, organizer for Flush The TPP, said “The TPP impacts every issue we care about as a result, a unified movement of movements to stop the TPP has developed. People who care about corporate power versus democracy and our sovereignty or about jobs and workers, the environment and climate change, health care, food and water, energy regulation of banks are mobilizing to make stopping the TPP their top priority.”

On November 16th through 18th the groups will begin their protests on Monday morning at the US Trade Representative building on 17th Street with the message that the TPP betrays the people, planet and democracy. This will be followed that evening by a protest that begins at the US Chamber of Commerce and White House then marches along K Street and ends at the Reagan International Trade Center. The next day the groups will have an international focus protesting at multiple sites along Embassy Row to stand in solidarity with people around the world who are fighting to stop the TPP. On the final day the groups will focus on Congress.

White House Petition Asks Obama to Keep 2007 Promise to Label GMOs - GMO labeling could soon be illegal

August 6th, 2015

Sign the Petition

"It’s time for President Obama to keep his 2007 promise to label GMOs. In his own words, Obama declared it was our ‘right to know’ what we are eating, and we agree.

That’s why I have launched a White House petition asking Obama to keep his 2007 promise to enact GMO labeling nationwide.

The petition comes at a crucial turning point in the fight for GMO labeling, as the notorious ‘DARK Act‘ that would make GMO labeling illegal has been approved by the House of Representatives and is moving towards the Senate. The fate of the legislation, officially known as the ‘Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act,’ could soon come down to Obama’s signature (or veto). In other words, it’s now more essential than ever that we bring Obama’s 2007 promise to the national spotlight.

Otherwise, we could soon see the same President who promised GMO labeling sign off on a bill that would make it illegal.

We petition the Obama administration to: Keep Obama's 2007 Promise to Label GMOs

Dear Mr. President,

In your 2007 campaign speech, you promised to protect our 'right to know' what's in our food by labeling genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the food supply.

Eight years later, and you have done nothing to act on this promise.

What's more, a food bill passed by the House called the 'DARK Act' could soon make mandatory GMO labeling illegal in the United States.

If you are to sign this bill into law, you would be doing the exact opposite of what you promised us in 2007.

Please deliver on your 2007 promise. Veto the DARK Act that would make GMO labeling illegal, and institute mandatory GMO labeling in the United States.

We have the right to know what we're eating.
