Dallas Yes Men Infiltrate Trans Pacific Partnership Gala, Hand Out Fake Corporate Power Tool Award to Former Mayor

Anti-corporate pranksters affiliated with The Yes Men briefly interrupted a gala at the 12th round of talks hammering out the secret Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement in Dallas on Friday.  U.S.Trade Representative and former Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk nearly accepted a faked “Corporate Power Tool Award” from Dallas puppeteer/activist David Goodwin, as a crowd of thirsty negotiators gave a round of reflexive applause. Of course, they had the video running!
