The U.S. Chamber is notorious for blocking climate action and buying off politicians to put corporate profits ahead of people, planet and peace. Now the Chamber is trying to force through the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) – a secretive job-killing trade agreement that would give multinational corporate tribunals the power to overrule economic and environmental decisions made democratically at the local level.
Join us on Friday, 4/25 at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington DC – and at its regional and state offices across the country – and put the world’s most powerful corporate lobbyist group on notice that the movement for People, Planet and Peace is ready to stop the TPP and end the Chamber's corrupt grip on our democracy.
