Border Communities Reject “Trans-Pacific Partnership” (TPP):
 More Empty Promises

Tomorrow, August 18th, Hope Border Institute will join leaders from La Mujer Obrera, Texas Fair Trade Coalition, Columban Mission Center, the Equal Voice Initiative and the University of Texas at El Paso at a press conference on the proposed trade agreement known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

HBI has released a new Frontera Facts outlining why border communities oppose the TPP: 

"President Barack Obama has made passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a so-called 'free trade agreement' covering the United States and 11 other countries, a major priority. While the TPP masquerades as an equitable trade deal, it simply strengthens the rights of investors and corporations to maximize profit at the expense of human dignity, workers, the environment and democracy. Having experienced the devastating effects of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), border communities know the effects of backroom deals masquerading as 'free trade,' and rightly reject the TPP."
