6:30 PM  There will be a rally near the Cedar Lee Theater to oppose the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).  This agreement has been put on hold during the election season, but President Obama and Republican leaders support these trade bills.  President Obama has stated that he will try to get it passed during the lame duck session of congress, despite the opposition to it by both presidential candidates as well as large sections of the American people.  This is part of National Action Days to Stop TPP.
 
    The TPP  is more than a trade agreement.  It would also govern environmental, consumer, and internet rules, among others.   It would affect health care by extending drug monopolies, and could override governmental intervention into health care.    Doctors Without Borders calls it "a Bad Deal for Medicine."
 
    Speakers at the rally include
  • Michelle Mahon, RN, Organizer for National Nurses Union
  • Beverly Charles, aide to Congresswoman Marcia. Fudge
  • Harriet Applegate, executive director of the North Shore AFL-CIO
