Secret TPP rounds continue

This week in Melbourne, Australia, trade negotiators and their corporate sponsors began another round of secret negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement. This deal is branded as a trade pact, but really at issue is a backdoor attack on a wide array of domestic policies.

From financial regulation to Buy America procurement and all sorts of new rights for large corporations, corporate advisors have access to hundreds of pages of draft treaty text that is being kept secret from the press and public.

Take a moment to alert your governor and members of Congress about this secret attack on the environment, public health and even our justice systems.
