Democracy Now Report on TPP http://youtu.be/CS-x5SlcPPM
It’s a corporate Trojan Horse. Limits food safety and environmental safety legislation and more. . . and a whole chunk of SOPA is also included. Every country will be required to change its laws to conform to this.
TPP threatens food safety. It places the profits of multinational corporations over the food security of individual nations.
“The Obama administration has made it a priority to have the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) completed by the end of the year. The TPP is the largest trade agreement negotiated since the World Trade Organization (WTO). It covers 12 countries so far and includes provisions that reach beyond issues of trade. The full contents of the TPP are unknown because it has been negotiated with unprecedented secrecy; however, it is clear from what has been revealed that the TPP gives transnational corporations the power to alter our laws down to the local level to enhance and protect their profits.” See more at: http://www.occupy.com/article/we-will-not-obey-building-global-resistance-trans-pacific-partnership#sthash.ksspK8AT.Pdfcbs67.dpuf

Expose The TPP
The Trans-Pacific Partnership n. 1. A “free trade” agreement that would set rules on non-trade matters such as food safety, internet freedom, medicine costs, financial regulation, and the environment. 2. A binding international governance system that would require the United States, Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, and any other country that signs on to conform their domestic policies to its rules. 3. A secret trade negotiation that has included over 600 official corporate “trade advisors” while hiding the text from Members of Congress, governors, state legislators, the press, civil society, and the public.
