What is the TPP?
“It’s the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a secret trade deal being negotiated behind the backs of congress and the American people, with the help of 600 corporate advisors. It threatens to undermine our democracy by entrenching corporate power in virtually every area of our lives.” — FROM FLUSH THE TPP http://www.flushthetpp.org/
———
“The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a disastrous trade agreement designed to protect the interests of the largest multi-national corporations at the expense of workers, consumers, the environment and the foundations of American democracy. It will also negatively impact some of the poorest people in the world.
The TPP is a treaty that has been written behind closed doors by the corporate world. Incredibly, while Wall Street, the pharmaceutical industry and major media companies have full knowledge as to what is in this treaty, the American people and members of Congress do not. They have been locked out of the process.” — FROM http://www.sanders.senate.gov/stop-the-tpp

More than 50 cities from Hawaii to Florida took action against unjust trade last week. With more and more members of Congress making their stances on the new Fast Track bill public, it’s critical to keep up the momentum to say NO.

Wikileaks Releases TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Agreement Investment Chapter
The TPP Investment Chapter, published today, is dated 20 January 2015. The document is classified and supposed to be kept secret for four years after the entry into force of the TPP agreement or, if no agreement is reached, for four years from the close of the negotiations.

Julian Assange, WikiLeaks editor said: “The TPP has developed in secret an unaccountable supranational court for multinationals to sue states. This system is a challenge to parliamentary and judicial sovereignty. Similar tribunals have already been shown to chill the adoption of sane environmental protection, public health and public transport policies.”
