TPP Protest: U.S. Trade Rep Accused of Betraying People’s Interests

Three days of protests against a trade agreement recently negotiated among twelve Pacific-rim nations kicked off early Monday morning at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative in Washington, DC. Protesters restricted access to the building as the business day began, using banners as blockades, and obstructed traffic in the area. Department of Homeland Security officers allowed them access and there were no arrests. Opponents of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) call it a bad trade deal and a sell-out of American workers, consumers, and small businesses.
