Call for Aloha ‘Aina

Kahea for Aloha ‘Aina

TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) chief negotiators to meet in Hawaii March 9-15th on the Big island at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Hotel.

This is big!  We need to mobilize for Aloha ‘Aina.  This is the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) of the Pacific that will grant corporate domination of county, state, and national sovereignty, threaten jobs, the environment, sacred sites, labor rights, increase the gap between rich and poor, and increase militarization in the Pacific, etc.

The 12 countries involved in a proposed Pacific-Rim free (U.S.corporate dominated) trade initiative will convene a chief negotiators’ meeting in mid-March in Hawaii, sources close to the matter said on Friday, as they scramble to secure a deal by the end of this spring. The 12 countries are the U.S., Japan, Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.
