Say No to TPP: Ole Miss Rally

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
In conjunction with the international day of protest marking last Thursday's signing of the TPP, I organized a protest rally here at Ole Miss. We heard speeches about the disastrous effects of neoliberal policies in general and the TPP in particular, and signed a petition demanding that Congress refuse ratification. The event was covered by the Daily Mississippian, with a letter to the editor printed in the Oxford Eagle the day before.
