Our Revolution Statement on TPP

WASHINGTON -- Larry Cohen, Our Revolution Board Chair, released the following statement in response to President Trump's decision to sign a memorandum Monday to leave the proposed TPP trade pact:

"The Trans-Pacific Partnership has been dead for months thanks to a mass movement of black, brown, and white working Americans united with environmentalists, human rights, and consumer groups. Today, the President buried it. But our movement needs to fight forward to define fair trade and economic justice and a global economy that works for all of us."
