The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement – aka “NAFTA on 
Steroids” – is a corporate power grab that would be a disaster for the 
environment, workers’ rights, our health, and more. Which is why so many 
activists like you have worked so hard to defeat it!

But corporate lobbyists are at it again, trying to quietly rush the TPP 
through Congress this fall. We won’t let that happen! This time, some 
incredible musicians are drawing attention to the issue with a free 
series of concerts: the Rock Against the TPP tour.

But it doesn’t end there – we’ll be keeping the momentum going with a 
teach-in on the TPP on Saturday!

TOMORROW NIGHT, Rock Against the TPP in Boston!
