Tuesday, April 15 at 7:00 pm — The TPP and reasons to stop it
How the most important treaty you never heard of would affect you. Everything local: food, jobs, energy, local government, national sovereignty—would be undermined by this treaty.

Negotiated in secret by Obama administration representatives and big corporations, this is a “wholesale corporate grab for control.”

Matt Smith of NJ Food & Water Watch will shed some light on the secretive TPP and its “Fast Track.”
