Highlight from “Tom Morello and Talib Kweli protest against TPP as fellow stars stay quiet”

A group of artists led by the former Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello and Talib Kweli criss-crossed the country on the Rock Against the TPP tour, seeking to bring attention to the highly controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.

The tour was organized by advocacy groups with differing political stances, such as Fight for the Future, the Sierra Club and the Teamsters, and pushes attendees to call on their representatives to vote against the deal when it hits the House floor this fall.

“Once people learn about the TPP, they generally don’t like it,” said Evan Greer, both a campaigner for Fight for the Future and a musician performing on the tour.
