If the coffee had not yet kicked in for attendees of Saturday morning’s kick-off session at the PA Progressive Summit in Harrisburg this past weekend, everyone was wide awake by the time Fred Azcarate, Executive Director of US Action, finished speaking.
Azcarate spoke about the need to stand up and fight back for a fair economy and to stop in its tracks the latest “mother-of-all” free trade deals, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP. Of the TPP, Azcarate said:
Like any blood-sucking vampire, this deal cannot stand the light of day. The vast majority of people oppose fast-track authority to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership. But it’s our job to do what we always do: organize, educate, and mobilize. If we do that brothers and sisters, we will beat this thing.
Right on brother.
