If the TPP passes as proposed, the multinational corporations will obtain everything they negotiated in secret, with no public scrutiny and without change.
Following is a quote from Senator Elizabeth Warren on June 21, 2013 regarding Fast Track of the TPP:
“If people knew what was going on, they would stop it. Trade agreements are important. They affect everything — our imports and exports, wages, jobs, the environment, financial services, and even the Internet.”
To take action we must contact our elected officials in Congress and let our voice be heard. The most influential way to do this is a phone call or personal visit. The next best way is a letter or e-mail.
Below are the officials from Hawaii we have elected to serve Hawaii at the Federal level. To date, all have voted against the Fast Track or Trade Promotion Authority, and all four have spoken out about the serious problems with the TPP. A simple e-mail or phone call to say thanks for voting against the TPP will go a long way to ensure Hawaii stands firm against the TPP in its present form. Following are quotes from all four of our Hawaii team in Washington, working hard to support our interests:
Sen Brian Shatz – August 2, 2015, Honolulu Star Advertiser – Foreign investors could use TPP to challenge U.S. laws, leaving American interests without access to U.S. courts.
Sen Mazie Horono – August 2, 2015, Honolulu Star Advertiser – The secrecy surrounding the trade agreement does not bode well for Hawaii, especially for our agricultural industry.
Rep Tulsi Gabbard – August 2, 2015, Honolulu Star Advertiser – Like other trade agreements,TPP will likely cause a massive loss of U.S. jobs – and at an unprecedented rate.
Rep Mark Takai.- August 2, 2015, Honolulu Star Advertiser – Strength abroad starts here at home: We shouldn’t strengthen our foreign policy by weakening our domestic economy.
