Stop The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
We urge Congress to vote no on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). An agreement like the TPP should be negotiated in the full light of day. America must reserve the right to determine our own consumer, health, safety, labor, privacy, and environmental regulations. Do not surrender our rights to trans-national corporations.
Why is this important?
The Administration and the U.S. Trade Representative just reached a deal with 11 other nations on the secretly negotiated, massive so-called "free-trade" agreement, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). As the long fought for, recent release of the TPP text proves, the agreement will greatly empower corporations by virtually eliminating consumer, health, safety, labor, privacy, and environmental regulations, enforcing corporate domination over our justice system through offshore corporate investor-state tribunals or ISDS.
Despite massive popular opposition to the TPP (despite media silence) on the part of citizens of all party nations, the TPP will now come up for a vote in Congress within months under the anti-democratic Fast Track procedure. Now we are in the fight of our lives to urge Congress to oppose the TPP when it comes up for a vote.
