***FRI FEB 3 at 12:00pm Noon ***RALLY: FAIR DEAL OR NO DEAL! RALLY *** in SAN DIEGO*** THE TRANS-PACIFIC FTA: "NAFTA OF THE PACIFIC?" Trade Negotiators and Corporate Lobbyists from around the Pacific Rim will be in Southern California next week * SECRETLY HAMMERING OUT the FUTURE of GLOBAL TRADE RULES !* Sounds important, right? Yet, no one knows about it, and that's just the way corporations like it. While the AMERICAN PUBLIC IS EFFECTIVELY SHUT OUT of the negotiation process, there are over 600 certified "corporate advisors" charged with re-writing trade rules on labor and environmental standards, food safety, drug patents and hundreds of other issues. If Corporate America has their way and keeps theses negotiations behind closed doors, the Trans-Pacific FTA will almost certainly become "NAFTA of the Pacific"... on steroids. WHERE: University of California, San Diego* Location TBA *We can't afford to let the corporate elites continue to make trade rules for the 1% behind closed doors. Help us shed light on these dangerous negotiations. INFO & RSVP: go to http://calfair.org/... Join the facebook event page. Any questions, email email@example.com
