MONDAY’s ACTION(s):
CONGRESS ENDS RECESS, VOTE COULD HAPPEN TOMORROW

Fast Track has passed both Senate and House committees, Congress returns from recess tomorrow May 12th, and the Fast Track bill could come to a vote as early as tomorrow. Share this graphic on social media to “Sound The Alarm” and let’s keep the pressure up! Inline image 1

TUESDAY’s ACTION(s): 
VOTE POSSIBLE TODAY, CALL YOUR SENATORS!
This afternoon, Tuesday May 12th, the Senate may be voting on Fast Track for TPP and other rigged corporate trade agreements and it looks like we could win! We always thought we would win on the House side of things, but the Senate is very much alive. So please call and urge everyone you know to call your Senators and urge them to vote NO on Fast Track. The number is: 202-224-3121. Here is more info: https://www.popularresistance.org/first-senate-vote-on-fast-track-for-tpp-on-tuesday/
WEDNESDAY’s ACTION(S)
TRUMP: “OTHER COUNTRIES WILL DUPE US”
Read and Share, America’s favorite conservative mogul stands against TPP. “TPP trade deal ‘a disaster,’ other countries will ‘dupe’ US – Donald Trump” http://rt.com/usa/257377-tpp-deal-trump-criticism/
THURSDAY’s ACTION(S)
FLUSH THE TPP UPDATES
Visit Flush the TPP for updates about this week’s Senate vote, and what to expect now. http://www.flushthetpp.org/category/campaign-updates/
FRIDAY’s ACTION(S)
CWA ANTI-TPP LEADERSHIP
Fast Track is in hot water. More and more lawmakers are lining up against legislation that would speed NAFTA-style trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) through Congress. And that has a lot to do with activists like you. CWA members around the country have been bombarding their senators and representatives with demonstrations, phone calls and handwritten letters. Their message, in the words of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, is, “Hell no!” So far CWAers have generated 8,239 handwritten letters and 5,593 calls to targeted House members and Senators. Meanwhile, they continue their letter-writing, e-mailing and phone calls and visiting member of Congress offices as well as holding town hall meetings and rallies. CWAers and other activists were on hand as New York joined a growing list of U.S. municipalities to reject bad trade policies. Anti-Fast Track and TPP-free resolutions have been passed by other cities including San Francisco; Los Angeles; Seattle; Pittsburgh; St. Paul, Minn.; Madison, Wis.; Berkeley, Calif.; Tompkins County, N.Y.; Fort Bragg, Calif.; Mahoning County, Ohio; Bellingham, Wash., Richmond, Calif.; Hollywood, Calif.; Oak Park Township, Ill.; Dane County, Wis.; and Guadalupe, Ariz. Contact your municipal government and ask for a resolution against Fast Track and the TPP ! More at http://www.cwa-union.org/news/entry/activists_say_hell_no_to_fast_track#.VVFZA_lViko
SATURDAY’s ACTION(S)
KETCHUP DAY

Saturday’s are now known as “KETCHUP DAY” because I love the condiment, and it is a chance to catch-up on the week’s action :>)
