January 16 — Here is a new song, “All That’s Left,” which we finished recording this week in Baltimore.

While these are especially difficult and frightening times in politics, we do have one important piece of good news. Through six years of campaigning and international social movement cooperation, we have defeated the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a multinational commercial agreement driven by lobbyists that would have empowered corporations against the public interest and public health. A story in Yes! Magazine provides a glimpse of our strategy and work, which we are hopeful will save many lives.
