The Atlanta #StopTPP Coalition calls on all allies across the US and the world to join us on Oct 1st to Shut It Down to #StopTPP!

​ Community members and concerned citizens from labor, faith, youth, senior, environment, LGBT, and others are coming together and inviting all within our United States and the global community to draw a line in the sand in Atlanta and to demand that the TPP shall not pass!

We will not stand for the TPP corrupting our democracy and eliminating our rights by putting corporations such as Walmart, Chevron, Cargill, and McDonalds in greater control of our daily lives leading us into a global race to the bottom. The undemocratic and secretive TPP would threaten good jobs, public services, access to affordable life-saving medicines, the environment and our climate, consumer health and safety and much more in our communities across the world.

We call on all allies across the world to join the Atlanta community on Oct 1st as we take on the TPP! We shall not be moved, we shall #StopTPP!
