This month marks the twenty-year anniversary of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a pact that has had devastating consequences for people and the environment in all three countries and beyond. The pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has been described as “NAFTA on Steroids” and threatens to enable corporate attacks on environmental policies to combat climate change, among many other abuses. If you can, please join us in downtown Portland on Friday, as we gather to stand against this backroom deal for the 1%.
