Week of Action Against Fast Track Capped by Rally and March in D.C.

April 21, 2015

On Monday, hundreds of workers and their allies rallied in front of the AFL-CIO headquarters in Washington, D.C., then marched to the U.S. Trade Representative's office in opposition to Fast Track trade legislation that would allow the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to pass with little oversight or public input. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was a featured speaker at the rally and joined AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, AFL-CIO Executive Vice President Tefere Gebre, Communications Workers of America (CWA) President Larry Cohen, political commentator Jim Hightower, Campaign for America's Future, National People's Action, Alliance for a Just Society, USAction and workers from numerous unions in the rally, which also featured a giant TPP Trojan horse.
