I am not bound for any public place, but for ground of my own where I have planted vines and orchard trees, and in the heat of the day climbed up into the healing shadow of the woods. Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup.

Demand Fair Trade - On behalf of the Central Florida Group, I am inviting local Sierrans to join us Tuesday evening, August 27th at 6:30, Lake Eola, as we light the night with the Orlando Light Brigade to protest against the secretive trade agreement with the U.S. and Pacific Rim member nations.

THE LIGHT BRIGADE ILLUMINATES THE NIGHT: FLUSH THE TPP PROTEST AT LAKE EOLA
August 27, 2013 CONTACT: Richard Hillwig 407-591-7690
Orlando, fl– Activist from labor, fair trade, environmental and the general community will hold a light brigade protest. Using giant boards with LED lights, the message “Flush the TPP” will be spelled out around Lake Eola on Tuesday, Aug. 27th, to protest the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a secretive trade deal that threatens to worsen a global race to the bottom for wages, consumer safety, health care and environmental standards.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership, a proposed deal between the United States and 11 other Pacific Rim nations, is poised to become the largest trade agreement in U.S. history. It could have wide-reaching influence on the quality of life of everyday Americans, yet the only people at the negotiating table are corporate lobbyists and government negotiators, not groups concerned about workers, public health, free speech, the environment and consumer protections. Protestors will be demanding fair trade, not “free trade.” Local citizens need to tell the White House no fast track agreements-we want to have the right to know what our country is trading away.

WHAT: Using giant boards, the members of the Light Brigade will spell out in LED lights the message “FLUSH THE TPP”
WHEN: Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at 8:30p.m.
WHERE: Starting on the Lake Eola sidewalk closet to Publix’s
WHO: Members of Central Florida Sierra Club, Communication Workers of America, religious groups and human rights organizations
