Why do we need to rock?
We’ve built a huge community of Canadians who know that the TPP will threaten our digital rights and the open Internet, while robbing us of the right to shape policies that work for us. (For more on why the TPP is terrible for the Internet, click here.)
But still, too many people are still sitting on the sidelines, because they just don't know how dangerous the TPP is. It's simple: pro-TPP forces need to keep those people on the sidelines to ram the deal through. If we can get those people off the sidelines then we will win.
And what better way than a large scale concert, educational event, and teach-in to catch the attention of the media, reach thousands of people who have never heard of the TPP before, and give them the tools they need to fight back.
If you haven’t already, RSVP for a free ticket to our event in Toronto RIGHT NOW.
