Forum Post: ACTION ALERT: TPP - 3 Days to Stop the Corporate Death Star ~Sign Real Time Petition!

Details are leaking of a top-secret, global corporate power grab of breathtaking scope — attacking everything from a free Internet to health and environmental regulations, and we have just 4 days to stop it. Big business has a new plan to fatten their pockets: a giant global pact, with an international tribunal to enforce it, that is kept top secret for years (even from our lawmakers!) and then brought down like a Death Star on our democracies. Big Tobacco, Big Oil, Big Pharma, Walmart and almost 600 other corporate lobbyists are all in on the draft — including limits on smoking laws, affordable medicines and free speech on the Net.

The latest round of negotiations ends in just 4 days — but outcries in each of our countries could shake the confidence of negotiators and scuttle the talks forever. Let’s get to a million against the global corporate takeover. Sign below and forward widely. Avaaz will project our petition counter on the walls of the conference so negotiators can see the opposition to their plan exploding in real time:

The deal, called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), is written to protect investors from government regulation, even if that regulation is passed in the public interest. Leaked versions suggest the TPP would undermine protections for air and water safety and reintroduce measures from the US Internet freedom attack as well as steamrolling efforts to produce generic affordable medicines. Worse still, lawmakers who fail to conform to the TPP’s rules face sanctions in an international tribunal — a place where corporations can sue us for deals previous governments signed in secret!

Negotiators say this is just a trade agreement, written to facilitate investment and profit for all. But the leaked draft imposes so many limits on citizen protections, it’s clear this “trade” agreement is skewed to put corporate profit above people’s needs — that’s not surprising since it’s been drafted in secret with almost 600 corporate lobbyists.

But there is hope: Australia is bucking against the international tribunal system, and New Zealand is objecting to the takeover of its medicine-pricing protections that keep drugs affordable. Massive public opposition, casting doubt over each country’s ability to sell TPP at home, could derail the talks for good. Sign the petition now, and forward widely — the delegates and lobbyists are watching the wave of opposition grow in real time:

This is good. Signed it. But where's the petition to repeal any and all legislation that gave rise to central banks and their systems all over the world? Eliminate all laws that protect central banks and their systems and you will eliminate them entirely. Real money and real prosperity will return. With that, the oligarchs in business will have nothing to fund their programs like Trans-Pacfic or otherwise. With that, all the sycophants who depend on the loot of central banking will have to find real work and buy and sell using real money. Wow! What a concept.

Lolol! That petition is safely locked away in the Rothschild vault.

Have to make our own petition, then.

"The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) : An Extremist 1% Global Attack", by Mark Vorpahl :

"During the week of July 1st - 7th an international cabal of corporate lobbyists met behind closed doors in San Diego. Their aim is moving the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) towards completion. For over two years TPP negotiations have been in process, yet the proposals and agreements made so far have been carefully kept from public view, until recently."

Signed.

Thx.

We will need lots of luck to stop this deal to big business.

This has been goin on for 5 years? Why is it taking so long?

[-] 2 points by Renneye (3300) 1 year ago

Probably the stuff we don't see. The in-fighting at the upper echelons. Who's going to have ultimate control, the bribery, extortion, the secrecy. It is after all, a fight for global dominance. Thanks for signing VQkag2.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Yeah. gotta keep fighting 'till the end

Are the Illuminati behind for this?

Toad.

Toads are behind this? You mean Reptilian Overloards? Half toad half men? The ones that control Svali? Is OWS still using Illuminati symbols like you once wrote about?

I like your link. I see nothing wrong with left leaning economic interests supporting the effort to redefine the social construct. Most interesting perhaps, is the perspective of the author of the post you linked to:

.

Anger is becoming epidemic, but we will see the relationship between the protesters and our President get cozier. We will see demands clarified and leaders emboldened. We will probably see the harsh winter disperse the crowds to warmer climes. But networks are being established, and protesters are being indoctrinated.

The socialist cancer has invaded our vital organs: our government, our public and higher education, our mass media, our arts and sciences. Our language has changed, and our dialogue has been misdirected. The cancer might go away for a moment, but it will return more virulent, and it will eventually get violent.

As a nation, we waste our leisure time in pursuits of excitement, idleness, or pleasure. In the old days, leisure time was a valuable gift. Leisure and liberty were both hard earned by our great forebears, which many have taken for granted. We are living on borrowed time, a debt that must be repaid.

A time of reckoning is now upon us. It is time to turn off the insidious TV, the dehumanizing music, a time to tune out the deceptive media. It is time to replace our trivial pursuits with fasting, fervent prayer, and the study of the Scriptures. It is time to turn to our Lord with full purpose of heart. If we follow His lead, our concerns will be eased, our burdens will be lighter, and our spirituality will be strengthened.

.

Indeed.

Obviously the author is full of shit. But other than that a very interesting article.
