HOW THE TRANS-PACIFIC
PARTNERSHIP WOULD IMPACT YOU
& HOW THE TPP WOULD IMPACT EVERYTHING ELSE
THE PUBLIC, CONGRESS, & THE PRESS
THE DRAFT TPP TEXT
THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP is a
It is currently being negotiated behind closed doors by officials from the United States and 11 other countries: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has been under negotiation for 5 years.
More than 600 official corporate "trade advisors" have access. The Obama administration plans to sign TPP by fall 2013.
Although it is called a
"free trade" agreement,
the TPP is not really
mainly about trade.
Of the TPP's 29 draft chapters, only 5 deal with traditional trade issues. Most would set rules on non-trade matters that affect our daily lives:
food safety, internet freedom, medicine costs, job off-shoring, financial regulation, and more.
Our domestic policies
would be required to
comply with the TPP rules.
FOR A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING
is the mechanism that will
allow the Obama administration to
circumvent constitutional checks and balances
to ram the TPP
JUST LIKE HIS PREDECESSORS DID WITH NAFTA AND THE WTO.
Derail Fast Track.
Stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
