March to U.S Rep. Mike Quigley's office to STOP TPP AND FAST TRACK

The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Trade Promotion Authority (Fast Track) threaten to UNDO all we have done or could do to LABEL genetically engineered foods.   These could also prevent country of origin labeling, campaigns to "buy local" and many important health, safety and environmental protections.    

Congress will be voting on TPP and Fast Track soon.  

Representative MIKE QUIGLEY is a KEY Congressman here, and his NO vote is IMPORTANT.   He recently stated his SUPPORT for TPP and he needs to know this is UNACCEPTABLE to voters!

Please meet at 11:40 sharp at Jonquil Park.  (Meetup will only let me enter quarter hours, but ok to be there early!)   DRESS WARMLY and we will MARCH TOGETHER to Rep. Quigley's office nearby at 3223 North Sheffield!  

The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement is like NAFTA on steroids. It is a corporate coup negotiated in near-total secrecy, even from Congress, to undermine labor, the environment, and democracy. It would prevent our legislatures from enacting laws relating to Genetically Engineered Foods and many other laws relating to health, safety and the environment.  President Obama wants it to pass on the Fast Track, an arrangement that bypasses Congress's constitutional right to approve trade treaties. 

THIS IS IMPORTANT!  And REP. QUIGLEY is a KEY PLAYER.
