As Wall Street President Obama readies a last minute desperate push to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) through the lame duck congress after the November elections in his most cowardly action yet as president, large crowds descended on Portland Oregon for the Rock Against the TPP Oregon weekend of action.

Oregonians took action, educated themselves, had fun and enjoyed a great concert! This was part of a nationwide protest tour featuring celebrities such as Golden Globe nominated actress Evangeline Lilly, comedian Hari Kondabolu, and punk rock legends Anti-Flag. The tour next stops in San Francisco on September 9th at Regency Ballroom with an event featuring Jello Biafra, Grammy winning latin alternative band La Santa Cecilia, and riot-grrrl cello legend Bonfire Madigan. Additional tour dates to be announced, for more information visit http://www.RockAgainsttheTPP.org.

The TPP is a massive income and political power redistribution scam from the 99 to the 1 percent, and like NAFTA, it is a clear violation of the US Constitution, which requires the approval of 2/3rds of the US senate. NAFTA only received 61 votes.

Approval of the TPP creates a secret investor court in clear violation of the US Constitution. That court will allow foreign corporations, many of which are owned by US corporations and or have a high number of US investors, to challenge US laws that corporate hacks decide might inhibit future corporate profits.

So if you want to vote to ban a gasoline additive that’s being sold in your areas that has leaked into and poisoned your water system and caused babies to be born without brains, then the foreign corporation loaded with US investors can challenge that law in a secret tribunal in which you won’t be invited. In other words, the politicians who support the TPP, which is nearly the entire Republican Party, and Wall Street Democrats like Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Ron Wyden and Earl Blumenauer are all voting to redistribute your income and your voting rights (in violation of the US Constitution) on behalf of the bottom lines of foreign corporations, but also their US investors.
