As a part of Earth Day to May Day, Global Climate Convergence, 2014 the Shut the Chamber! campaign – organized by Liberty Tree together with CODE PINK!, Popular Resistance, Alliance for Democracy, the Overpass Light Brigade network, and more – held a national day of action to take on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Below is a photo gallery of the protest in Washington, DC at the national headquarters of the US Chamber of Commerce.
The U.S. Chamber is notorious for blocking climate action and buying off politicians to put corporate profits ahead of people, planet and peace. Now the Chamber is trying to force through the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) – a secretive job-killing trade agreement that would give multinational corporate tribunals the power to overrule economic and environmental decisions made democratically at the local level.
