Rock Against the TPP

Friday, September 16, 2016 - 6:00pm to Saturday, September 17, 2016 - 2:00am

The Opera House, 735 Queen Street East, Toronto

 
The TPP is an unfair, undemocratic deal that will strip us of our digital rights and threaten the open Internet.

We've been working for four years now to stop it – and we've pulled out all the stops: met with decision-makers, lobbied negotiators, jammed consultations with citizen comments, and even putting up a couple of attention-catching JUMBOTRONS.

We've built a huge community of Canadians who know that the TPP will threaten our digital rights and the open Internet, and robs us of the right to shape policies that work for us.

But still, too many people are still sitting on the sidelines, because they just don't know how dangerous the TPP is. It's simple: pro-TPP forces need to keep those people on the sidelines to ram the deal through. If we can get those people off the sidelines then we will win.

Just days before Parliament resumes sitting (Monday, September 19), we're holding a huge demonstration of just how much support there is for ditching the TPP – our concert and teach-in will show Ottawa that our rapidly growing movement will be impossible to sideline.

So we need you and your friends to show up ready to learn, to rock, and to get louder than ever!!
