From Space, Nobody Can Hear Your Anti-TPP Public Screams (all 22 of them)
OTOH, from a comment in the nakedcapitalism.com diary Gaius Publius: Tobacco Deaths, TPP and the “Trade” Courts, we read:
I am encouraged by the Japanese though. Japanese farmers there have enormous clout and are completely against the TPP. I was back in my wife’s hometown in a very rural part of Japan and there where “NO TPP” (in English) every where. My father-in-law, a retired lawyer/salaryman, calls the TPP (Baka!)
As I commented to Kevin Zeese here,
Do you know who is organizing the mobilization? There's no evidence of a public-facing mobilzation in NJ, that is publicly viewable, that I've seen. No flyers, no posters on supermarket billboards, no tables, no marches, no bumper stickers. Zero, nada, zilch, bupkis.
The only bigger potential train wrecks I see on the horizon, for US citizens as a whole, are the Ukraine/Nazi project, and the ongoing Syria/Iraq/ISS projects. The fact that the anti-TPP memes are still basically unknown, and unpublicized (by whatever means we do have available), at this late date, is depressing enough.
When I consider the contrasting situation in Japan, I'm frankly unsure as to whether I should be more depressed, or less. The Japanese can organize a public meme campaign, so you'd THINK that we could get inspired enough to imitate them. However, I'd be a liar if I expressed confidence that we actually will imitate them.....
