Even though blustery winds threatened to rip their signs away, protestors still made their stand against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in a small gathering at Peace Arch Park on Saturday, December 1. 

More than 200 activists from as far away as Oregon and Vancouver, B.C.  flocked to Peace Arch State Park to join the movement. 

“It’s like NAFTA on steroids,” said Dianne Foster, an Occupy Bellingham spokesperson. “We want to bring TPP out of its secret negotiations. We don’t want a handful of organizations to decide our laws for us.”
