Young Activist Caucus: Unite and Fight the TPP!

Next Up BC, Check Your Head, and KPIRG are coming together to host a young activist caucus at the Council of Canadians' day-long teach-in happening Saturday, April 16th. We'll brainstorm how students, young and precarious workers, young artists, and other young people can get organized to stop the TPP. We hope this will be an important first step in building collective power against the Trans-Pacific Partnership and other harmful trade agreements.

Come equip yourself with general knowledge about why the TPP is so disastrous. We'll give a short presentation, "How to talk about the TPP," empowering ourselves to educate others on its harms.

If the TPP is ratified, the rights of corporations will be strengthened at the expense of the public interest, with grave implications on food safety, health care costs, and privacy protections.

Child subsidies are available upon request.

About the teach-in:

Hosted by the Council of Canadians, Our Common Struggle, Making the Links - A Teach in on International Instruments of Corporate Power: TPP, CETA, FIPAs & NAFTA will be an opportunity for people across metro Vancouver to learn more about the dangerous implications of free trade.
