TPP Creates "Monsanto's Court" - Regulations would End

The TPP would give corporations unprecedented power to block laws and regulations that protect American jobs, our public health and our environment. This would be the end of democracy as we know it. Shame on our president for trying to Fast Track TPP through with limited debate and no ability for Congress to amend this disaster.

So far, NY senators are opposing fast track, as is Congressman Gibson. A call to their offices to thank them and tell them to stay strong would be helpful. Capitol switchboard - 202 244-3121. All should call their representatives today- tell them no fast track for TPP!

CALL-TO-ACTION: STOP FAST TRACK. Call & email your Senators and House Representatives 

now and demand that they vote NO ON FAST TRACK:
15 Democrats have struck a deal with Republicans to move Fast Track forward for a vote in the 

Senate. This could happen as early as tomorrow morning. But the fight is not over. Don't wait, take 

action today. Flood Congress with voicemails and emails:

DO YOU WANT an all-powerful Monsanto? A provision of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) 

“trade” deal called Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) would allow Monsanto to sue any 

nation bound by the TPP contract (Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New 

Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam) for potential lost profits as a result of 

GMO or pesticide regulations. Have GMO labeling or cultivation bans within your borders? Get 

ready to go to court. Monsanto’s court, that is. With ISDS, Monsanto can take its case before an 

international corporate court where corporate lawyers are the judges. And the ruling can’t be 

challenged in the defending nation’s courts. HELLO, GMO & PESTICIDE TAKEOVER. 

Fast Track (formally known as Trade Promotion Authority) is a power given to the President by 

Congress and would allow the President to push the TPP deal through without any Congressional 

debate or public review. STOP FAST TRACK.
