You’ll be happy to know that Cooperative Maine IS among the over 2000 organizational signers of the letter sent to Congress by the Citizens Trade Campaign (CTC).  If you open the PDF of the letter & scroll down to the, “Local, State, & Regional” section, you will see Cooperative Maine listed!  Arthur Stamoulis, ED of the CTC, asks that groups write a cover note about why your organization opposes Fast Track and the TPP and send it in to your Representative & Senators with a copy of the CTC letter.  |  So, every individual & cooperative should do so!  |  All four members of Maine’s Congressional Delegation are expressing opposition/concern about Fast Track – to varying degrees and for various reasons.  Generally, it’s just very, very bad process which is thoroughly undemocratic and offensive to common people with common sense & common decency.  The thinking is that, if Fast Track gets STOPPED in its tracks, then TPP is also stopped, effectively, since it will slow the process down and expose the contents of the black box to the light of day dooming the pact.

BUT!  It ain’t over ’til it’s over!  So, keep fighting to STOP FAST TRACK!  Or our local Maine economy will be over!
