As Obama gears up for a lame-duck push on the TPP, activists target U.S. House members at home.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) embodies the stacked deck. It was negotiated in secret of, by and for the global corporations.
“I don’t see how anyone could believe there was integrity in this process.”
“Look around the rain-fed corn farms in Oaxaca state, and in vast areas of Mexico, and one sees few young men, just elderly people and single mothers.”
The TPP is not about free trade.
Sweeping multilateral free trade deals have become a hot button issue in the ongoing US presidential election.
When Congress meets for its lame-duck session after the elections, it should resist pressure to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
