TPP: Terrible Plutocratic Plan (Trans-Pacific Partnership)

The TPP is actually the Trans-Pacific Partnership, more commonly known as NAFTA on steroids.[1]

Join a growing movement to prevent its creation.

The U.S. government is secretly negotiating this treaty with Pacific nations. Here are a few highlights of what whistleblowers have revealed is in the treaty:[2]

  • Corporate nationhood. The TPP will empower corporations to take real nations (including the U.S.) to court and overturn their laws.
  • Job offshoring. The TPP will create incentives for more exporting of jobs.
  • Damage to food safety.
  • Damage to environmental protections.
  • Enrichment of drug companies at the expense of human health.
  • Banning some generic drugs.
  • Further deregulating banks.[3] (Read that one twice if you have to! We’re not making this up!)
  • Forbidding the breaking up of too-big-to-fail financial firms, making them legally too big to fail.
  • Censoring the internet by effectively creating SOPA (the Stop Online Piracy Act) despite its failure in Congress as a result of strong public opposition.

TPP is a Terrible Plutocratic Plan. It’s fundamentally anti-democratic.
