What’s going on?
Last Friday, in a victory for progressives, members of the House of Representatives defeated fast-track trade authority, which would have all but guaranteed the passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. But some members of the House are still intent on passing this undemocratic and damaging bill. Last week only happened because thousands of people demanded that Congress listen to the people, not the multimillion dollar corporations that want yet another trade bill that privileges their profits over our well-being. If we’re going to sustain this victory, we need to keep fighting.
