OK, please first let me say that the activist sending this email is NOT Senator Warren, she just happens to have the same name:

I'd like to invite you to join us this Sunday, and every Sunday until a fast track vote happens in Congress, to meet and talk with our growing team of fair trade activists and coalition partners, such as Global Trade Watch. The call begins at 4:30 p.m. Pacific time, 7:30 p.m. Eastern.

This is the call in number and access code: Dial-in Number: (559) 726-1300 Access Code: 536655

MoveOn organizers are being joined in this fight by people from all over the country, and even beyond our borders. Toxic trade is NOT a partisan issue, it is a HUMAN issue. If you live, breathe, eat, drink, sleep, work, travel, get sick, or use the internet TPP will touch your life and NOT in a good way.

We are currently doing Teach-Ins to educate our friends and neighbors about just what it means when Congress gives up its constitutional authority to oversee trade agreements, and why it is so critical that we shine a light on it. (You can sign up to be a community educator. Just join the call or get in touch and we'll introduce you to someone in your own community who will show you how.)

(OK, this is me, Joanne - If you sign the MoveOn petition also, and I hope you will:)
Now that you've signed our petition, could you pass it on? We've been given a goal of 30,000 signatures to get help from MoveOn and to get there we need the petition to go viral:

When you read this, please let us know if you signed, shared, or did both - and when and where. Include your email address and zip code.

In Solidarity,
Liz :)

P.S. We have a limited number of spaces left in our online meeting room where you can follow the conference agenda on PowerPoint during the call. If you would like to do that, send a message to me and we will send out log-in details until the room is full.

Petition signed.

Monsanto is one of the worst companies in the world. We must not allow toxic foods, seeds into the world in the food chain. Human and animal life depends on healthy and safe foods, seeds. Foods must be labeled!

There is one too many Monsanto people in the FDA and USDA that must resign immediately. They are shills for Monsanto and are not for consumers. They are in contempt of the FDA and USDA.

People have a right to know what is in their foods.

Do not allow TAFTA and the TPP to pass. Do not allow passage of the Monsanto Protection Act.

Our human lives are at stake.

Ty, Judy.

Thank you for this. Everyone needs to know about TPP. It must be like a household name because it certainly will affect every household if it isn't stopped.

We can do better than turning in petitions by refusing to let money out of our hands and into the pockets of corporations, farmers who are not ORGANIC. The moral thing to do is to refuse to support these creeps financially, and instead, to support those who are thinking, ethical, spiritually concerned and work WITH nature instead of against her.

Yvette that works fine to a point, this TPP is another type of beast. I suggest everyone read up on what it is. It will affect EVERYTHING in your life. Unless you stop eating, taking medication, wearing clothes, working or living at all this TPP will affect you. So please sign the Petitions on this and do as you suggest too, but this TPP must have our signature AND please learn then educate others on it.

We need to get out of ALL trade organizations and we need to levy crippling fines on all Monsanto type polluters.

Thank you to all who signed/commented. Thanks for the additional info on actions or petitions to Joanne, Jim, and Dandelion. We need to do all we can, every way we can, to fight the TPP and TAFTA, (sometimes called the TTIP). The Monsanto Protection Act was passed in spring. Strict secrecy in all these enterprises is our enemy, and we must do our best to share anything we are able to find out.
