The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a highly secretive and expansive free trade agreement between the United States and eleven Pacific Rim countries -- and would be a huge power grab for the world's worst corporations.
Leaked text reveals that the TPP would empower corporations to directly sue governments in private and non-transparent trade tribunals over laws and policies that corporations allege reduce their profits.
Legislation designed to address climate change, curb fossil fuel expansion and reduce air pollution could all be subject to attack by corporations as a result of TPP. Additionally, the deal could criminalize internet use, undermine workers’ and human rights, manipulate copyright laws, restrict government regulation of food labeling and adversely impact subsidized healthcare.
Right now, our best chance of stopping this train wreck from moving forward is to stop the U.S. Congress from giving “fast-track” authority to President Obama to ram the agreement through without a public debate.
