Green Shadow Cabinet Independence Day Resolution: Revolt against the TPP and global corporate rule

green shadow cabinetFrom the Green Shadow Cabinet:

On this 4th of July, are you resolved to live in a free and democratic society, independent of global corporate rule? Will you act to shut down the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other efforts by the owners and managers of global corporations to replace We the People with We the Corporations?

Read these statements. Understand that the TPP is a global corporate coup. And resolve to join us in taking action to stop the TPP.

These actions will build into major protests beginning in September. You can sign up and get involved here.  We urge you to do so. Continue Reading
