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
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”
