Today in the wee hours of the morning Wikileaks leaked the text of the environmental chapter of the ultra-secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership. It is every bit as bad as expected, allowing corporations to exploit and degrade natural resources without consequence. See:

We reiterate our opposition to the TPP and to FAST TRACK legislation, which has now been introduced into the Senate (S 1900) and the House (HR 3830).

We ask everyone to call her or his congress member at 202/225-3121 and OPPOSE FAST TRACK! Also go to: http://www.stopfasttrack.com/
