Chicago to Protest Obama's TPP Signing: Time to stop the TPP!

The TPP is a corporate coup and is being signed on Feb 3rd by Pres. Obama. Join dozens of organizations from across Chicago and the surrounding suburbs in protest against this horrific, far reaching attack on working people everywhere, environmental laws, food safety, internet freedom, and access to medicine. Illinois Senators Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk need to feel the pressure of their constituents to vote "NO" to the TPP.

(See event on Facebook here) Gather at Fed Plaza at 4pm, bring a sign for yourself and one to share, dress warm and put your walking boots on. 
 

Speakers will include
Ron Honse - CWA
Scott Marshall, USW
Jessica Fujan - Food and Water Watch
Sonja Rotenberg, MSW, Board Member, Past President, Illinois Single-Payer Coalition 
A representative from National Nurses United

We'll be projecting anti-TPP images on some of the buildings in the area. The group will march to Union Station to flyer communters - one half of us will go onto Ogilvie to flyer the commuters going home from that station - asking them all to "Call Congress". 

Flyering will be followed by a short recap and announcements at 5:45p, at the NW corner of Monroe & Canal.
