This show was aired live from Leesburg, VA where the Trans-Pacific Partnership secret negotiations were being held. Kevin and Margaret opened the show with news about the Chicago Teachers Union going on strike and the Occupy the Debates project (OccupytheDebates.org). Our first guest is Bill Moyer of BackboneCampaign.org who speaks about strategy and tactics in movement building and direct action. Bill describes successful work that they have done in their community and how to tie that into national movement building. Then Arthur Stamoulis of the Citizens Trade Campaign, the first group to publish leaked text from the TPP, tells us what they know is in the TPP so far and what the implications are for people and the planet. We were in Leesburg to expose and oppose the TPP. Check out FlushtheTPP.org for videos and photos of the actions and more information about the TPP.
