Day against the TPP, 12:30 event below

Jan 31, 2014 – Day of Action against the TPP
When: Friday, January 31, 2014
Where: Across North America

No more NAFTA — 20 Years is Enough!

This is a call to action for communities throughout Mexico, Canada and the United States to join together on January 31, 2014, and say “ENOUGH!” to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other corporate “trade” deals. Solidarity actions elsewhere throughout the globe are also welcome.

January 2014 marks the twenty-year anniversary of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a pact that has had devastating consequences for working families, small farmers, indigenous peoples, small business and the environment in all three countries and beyond. The pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has been described as “NAFTA on Steroids.” Four years into the TPP negotiations, this new corporate power grab threatens to:
* Destroy livelihoods and accelerate the global race to the bottom in wages and working conditions
* Further commodify agriculture, trample food sovereignty, hurt small farmers and contribute to forced migration
* Enable new corporate attacks on democratically-enacted environmental and consumer protections
* Undermine global economic stability by prohibiting effective regulation of financial markets
* Reduce access to life-saving generic medications, increase the costs of prescriptions, and restrict freedom on the Internet
