Stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
Email Your Member of Congress to Oppose the TPP
Zahara Heckscher, a 51-year-old mother and self-described “cancer thriver,” went to Capitol Hill yesterday — supported by health professionals and the friends and family of people with cancer — to remind Congress of the real, life-or-death consequences of the corporate-rigged TPP.
Zahara was willing to be arrested because the TPP would give Big Pharma even more of a monopoly over life-saving medications — meaning people wouldn’t be able to afford the medicines like the ones now keeping her alive.
Even as she was being marched away in handcuffs, she did not stop her speech about how the TPP would keep life-saving drugs out of the hands of people who would face unnecessary suffering and early death.
Show solidarity with Zahara and urge your representative to oppose the TPP.
