We must insist that trade deals never be written to override policies that sovereign governments might later decide are best for their people, culture key industries and the environment.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) embodies the stacked deck. It was negotiated in secret of, by and for the global corporations.
The TPP is not about free trade.
“There is more than enough evidence from past trade agreements to indicate where the TPP will lead. It is part of the inexorable march by corporations to wrest from us the ability to use government to defend the public and to build social and political organizations that promote the common good.”
Obama will be delivering his defense of the proposed TPP at the Nike headquarters in Oregon thinking it is a good example of what he is hoping to accomplish. Unfortunately, Nike is not a solution but is, in fact, the very problem with this TPP proposal.
