WHAT IS TPP ?

TPP = Trans-Pacific Partnership. It is the dream of the 1%. With 600 U.S. corporations as officials advisors, this stealthy international agreement has been negotiated behind closed doors over the past two years – with talks heading to San Diego in July.

What would TPP mean for the 99%? Millions more American jobs offshored. Backdoor deregulation for financial firms to wreck the economy again. Floods of unsafe food and products. Higher medicine prices. A ban on Buy America policies needed to create green jobs and rebuild our economy. Foreign corporations empowered to attack our environmental and health policies in foreign tribunals.

Closed-door talks are on-going between the U.S. and Australia, Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam; with countries like Japan and China potentially joining later. The 600 corporate advisors have access to the draft text of this deal that could change all of our lives. The public, Members of Congress, journalists, and civil society are excluded. Until now… get involved!

Australia says no to investor rights to sue in leaked TPP Thursday, 14 June 2012, 1:43 pm Press Release: Australian Fair Trade and Investment Network

14 June 2012

Australia says no to investor rights to sue in leaked Trans-Pacific trade chapter, fair trade groups demand release of all text

“The leaked investment chapter of the Trans- Pacific trade agreement (TPPA) being negotiated between the US Australia, New Zealand and six other Pacific countries contains special rights for foreign investors to sue governments if a law or policy harms their investment," Dr Patricia Ranald, Convenor of the Australian Fair Trade and Investment network said today.

“However, the leaked chapter shows that Australian Government has kept to its policy and is refusing to apply the right of investors to sue governments for damages in Australia. We support the government's policy, but believe it would be more consistent if the government simply opposed the inclusion of this provision in the agreement,” said Dr Ranald.

Their selling us out of our last bit of possible future. They can't possibly be so stupid as to not know what they're doing. This is intentional damage. We will soon be a third world country. I'm sure "they" have their plans to live abroad when the shit hits the fan!

Your right they're selling us out and have been for a long time. They aren't stupid and know exactly what they're doing.

TPTB are leveling the global economic playing field. Draining the wealth from the developed nations and shifting it to the "emerging" nations.

The developed nations have populations with wealth and political strength. They are draining these populations of wealth and political rights. Once this is accomplished, it will enable a consistently weak global population to be more easily be exploited. Finally the biggest (psychopathic) human dream of all time will be achieved. World domination.

Things may seem bad today, but remember that 70's carly simon song? "These are the good old days". They will be when things get worse.
