On Tuesday evening citizens in Seattle and 12 other cities appeared on overpasses and roadsides to pull the Trans-Pacific Partnership, aka TPP, out of the shadows and into the light of public scrutiny. From Dallas to DC, San Diego to Seattle, Tucson to Detroit, Baltimore to Bellingham, Spokane to Chicago people took their messages to interstate overpasses, prominent monuments, and busy city streets using coordinated daytime and nighttime, high visibility tactics. They deployed giant banners saying No New NAFTA, mobilized LED light panels saying "(thumbs up) Democracy, STOP The TPP," and projected with spotlights messages like "Don’t Fast Track A Train Wreck." These coordinated citizen’s actions coincided with ongoing TPP negotiations taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah from November 12-24 and today’s anticipated release by Congressperson Rosa DeLauro and George Miller detailing the growing opposition to "Fast Track" among Congress, and preceded today’s surprise release by Wikileaks of a leaked chapter of the secretive "TPP" agreement.
