STOP FAST TRACK …. STOP THE TPP
#NoFastTrack for the #TPP
“What law says the text of the TPP must remain secret? It seems like a case of mass hypnosis. People claiming they can’t say what’s in the TPP trade agreement. And mainstream media accept this premise.”
That’s right, there is nothing that justifies keeping the TPP text secret. The reason it’s secret is because if people knew what was written, in totality, there might be an uprising. But from what we know of portions of leaked texts, the TPP is not good. And multinational corporations like Monsanto are up to no-good.
One example: A provision of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “trade” deal called Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) would allow Monsanto to sue any nation bound by the TPP contract (Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam) for potential lost profits as a result of GMO or pesticide regulations.
Have GMO labeling or cultivation bans within your borders? Get ready to go to court. Monsanto’s court, that is. With ISDS, Monsanto can take its case before an international corporate court where their corporate lawyers are the judges. And the ruling can’t be challenged in the defending nation’s courts.
HELLO, GMO & PESTICIDE TAKEOVER
GOODBYE, NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY
Fast Track (formally known as Trade Promotion Authority – TPA) is a power given to the President by Congress and would allow the President to push the TPP deal through without any Congressional debate or public review. The U.S. House could be moving forward with a vote on Fast Track soon.

~~Robert Reich takes on the Trans-Pacific Partnership~~
Published on Jan 29, 2015
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is the largest — and worst — trade deal you’ve never heard of and Republicans in Congress want to work with the Obama administration to “fast track” its passage.
We ALL are ONE!!
