Subject: Thought you’d be interested in this petition I just took action to add my name to Senators Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown and Bernie Sanders’ demand that the Obama administration immediately release the full text of the latest draft of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to members of Congress, their staff, and the American public, before Congress votes to Fast Track the TPP. Thought you’d be interested in signing on this petition too. Here is the link: Share this:FacebookLinkedInTwitterGoogleTumblrPinterestReddit (more…)

TODAY’S NOTICE This is another attempt at the degradation of the people.  This agreement takes away all of your ability to create anything new and have it belong to you. The TPP takes your intellectual rights and makes it the “CORPORATIONS”.  The following countries have or are at the point of signing on the this agreement. Take Notice, do something! Tyranny exists only if you allow it. M Published on Nov 14, 2013 Mike Papantonio, Ring of Fire Radio joins Thom Hartmann. Wikileaks has released another bombshell – this time publishing a portion of text from the secretly negotiated Trans Pacific Partnership. Now that the text is out in the open – will lawmakers in Washington finally realize how devastating the TPP is to the American economy?   httpv:// More to notice The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement “The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (“TPP”) is a free trade agreement currently being negotiated by nine countries: The United States, Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. Although the TPP covers a wide range of issues, this site focuses on the TPP’s intellectual property (IP) chapter. The TPP suffers from a serious lack of transparency, threatens to impose more stringent copyright without public input, and pressures foreign governments to adopt unbalanced laws.” Alan Grayson On Trans-Pacific Partnership: Obama Secrecy Hides ‘Assault On Democratic Government’   “Unelected corporate officials are given access to negotiation documents by virtue of their positions on U.S. Trade Representative advisory panels. Corporate representatives account for about 500 of the “cleared advisors” on those panels, while representatives of organized labor, environmental and other groups account for about 100 others. These cleared advisers are not permitted to discuss provisions with the press or the public. On Thursday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) sent a letter to Michael Froman, Obama’s nominee to head USTR, asking the agency to release negotiation documents to the public. In the letter, Warren noted that the head labor advisory committee had complained of “severe restrictions” USTR had imposed on the panel’s access to negotiation information.
