NO FAST TRACK/NO TPP CAMPAIGN

PRESS CONFERENCE: CITY HALL
NYC: Tomorrow Tues, Jan 21 
Time: 12 noon
Location: Steps of City Hall


Press Conferences around the state this week:  In an unprecedented show of POWER, solidarity and working together, labor, enviro, faith, food safety and community groups around the state are holding press conferences and/or rallies next week with our Reps who will publicly state their opposition to the Baucus-Camp Fast Track bill. 
PLEASE bring signs with the name of your organization. Nothing fancy is needed; handwritten is fine. One of the reasons we have been so successful in NY state is because all of us have worked so well together, so far. The most common reaction we get when calling our Reps is "Who is organizing all of this?". That's because we have thrown them off course by being united.  It is very important to continue to send this message through the visuals we'll get at the press conference.  Remember: YOU may know who you are, but no one else does unless you TELL THEM!  Also, please remember that, except for Rep Reed's district, this is not a protest - it's a press conference. Our message is the Reps standing together in opposition to Fast Track.  That's our accomplishment and our message to the opposition: Look at what we can do!
Confirmed participants: AFL-CIO, NYC Dist Council of Carpenters, CWA, Citizens Trade Campaign New York, MoveOn, Working Families Party, Sierra Club, TradeJustice, Food & Water Watch, LCLAA and more.

NYC: Fri, Jan 31st
Intercontinental Day of Action vs TPP and Corporate Globalization
NYC Location and details to be announced

The TPP is an expansive, highly secretive international free trade agreement. It's being negotiated by delegates from twelve Pacific Rim countries, including the United States, along with hundreds of industry leaders. Elected officials, civil society, and the press have largely been shut out of negotiations, but these leaked documents reveal disturbing provisions.

The TPP would empower corporations to directly sue governments over laws and policies that they claim reduce their profits. Legislation designed to address climate change, curb fossil fuel expansion, and reduce air pollution could all be subject to attack as a result of the TPP.

Right now, our best chance to stop this train wreck is to stop Congress from giving “fast-track” authority to President Obama, allowing him to push the agreement through without a public debate.

NO KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE CAMPAIGN
 
Pledge of Resistance to Stop KXL
 
The State Department is in the process of deciding whether to sign off on construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. State will soon issue a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS). There will then be a 90-day period for comments by other federal agencies and the general public, after which the department will then issue a draft National Interest Determination (NID). If the State Department decides that construction of the pipeline is "in our national interest," the final decision on whether to light this fuse to the biggest "carbon bomb" on the planet will be up to President Obama.
 
To date, more than 80,000 people have pledged to engage in peaceful civil disobedience to persuade Obama to make the right decision. This Pledge of Resistance is organized by CREDO, Rainforest Action Network, and The Other 98%, and involves actions in all fifty states that will be triggered when State issues its draft NID. There are five separate actions planned for New York City, and trainings for those actions will be taking place throughout the next few months. For more information, go to http://nokxl.org/wp-content/kxl_pledge.html, or contact Pat Almonrode at palmonrode@gmail.com. Together, we can STOP this pipeline!
