    1. Over 20 activists rallying now at this Anti-TPP rally outside of the Bank of Tucson building, and suite 510 of Congresswoman McSally (faces south). Large banner says “TPP – Bad for the 99%”, plus two people in white toilet costumes, and a tall black ghoul (Death?)in costume with a sign “TPP Kills Jobs”. Participants: Mary DeCamp, former candidate for W3 and Mayor (Green party); Andrea Witte (Connect the Dots Lady); Joe Bernick of the Salt Labor College. Few cars beeped as they drove by, in support.
