Derail the Trans-Pacific Partnership
No backroom deals for the 1%
Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “free trade” agreement talks resume this September in Leesburg, Virginia. Once again, negotiations will take place with the public locked out and the texts held in tight secrecy, meanwhile over 600 corporate advisors have regular access to the negotiating texts. On the table is a veritable smorgasbord of extreme new corporate rights to slam the 99%. Tell Ron Kirk to release the text of the TPP draft texts to ensure that public health and access to life-saving medicines aren’t on the bargaining table.

Dear U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk:
Americans deserve the right to know what U.S. trade negotiators are proposing in our name.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “free trade” agreement is likely to impact jobs, wages, agriculture, migration, the environment, access to medicine, consumer safety, banking regulations, indigenous rights, Internet freedom, government procurement and more. A pact this far-reaching should be negotiated in the most transparent and participatory manner possible.
Please publicly release all the TPP proposals now.
