EMERGENCY MEETING On WEDNESDAY at THE OVERFLOW COFFEE BAR AUDITORIUM, 1550 S. STATE, CHICAGO (doors open at 6:30, starts at 7:00, street parking with meters, some free parking, and a lot one block west of the Overflow; the Overflow has food for purchase).
Sponsored by THE FAIR TRADE COALITION AND MANY OTHER GROUPS (including MTA) are asking you to come to this emergency meeting.
Everyone is encouraged to come, no RSVPS necessary, non-partisan. Josh wise, executive director of the Fair Trade Coalition, will give us all the information we need to understand what’s at stake if the Trans Pacific Partnership passes via fast-track without congressional input or discussion. This could be up for a fast-track vote as soon as this week, though we doubt it— if that happens, then of course, this meeting is cancelled, so watch your news sources carefully. This is a non-partisan event—it’s not a fundraiser—and it is truly a national emergency!!
