Come Honor Rep. DeFazio and STOP the TPP!
To Fair Traders along Interstate 5 between Ashland and Springfield:
Come to Springfield this Friday to honor our long time Fair Trade Champion in Congress, Representative Peter DeFazio. He has been there for working people since before disastrous NAFTA and we want to show our appreciation for his steadfast and unwavering support!
This honoring celebration will be from 2pm to 4pm in Lively Park in Springfield. This afternoon schedule makes it very doable for folks to carpool. Along with honoring Rep. DeFazio we will be rallying for the upcoming trade fight of our lives. We are gearing up for President Obama’s big push to pass the TPP during the lame duck session (after the election). It takes all of us in Oregon and across the country, every fair trade activist to step up, grab a shovel and bury the TPP deeply for good in 2016.
Bring your organization’s banner to display. There will be tabling opportunities for organizations. Make an individual sign (a big one with your town’s name like “Grants Pass” or “Sutherlin” will help show that Oregonians from all over the state are firmly against this horrible and undemocratic trade deal.
It is not guaranteed, however we are looking for funds to help cover the cost of gasoline for carpools that make the r/t journey to Springfield. It is time to plan a road trip for justice, time to bury the TPP for good!
The primary supporters for this event are the Eugene Springfield Solidarity Network/Jobs with Justice (ESSN) and the Oregon Fair Trade Campaign (ORFTC) with many other groups signing on with support.
