TPP - Trading In Our Sovereignty
If passed, the TPP will
  • Have been negotiated in unprecedented secrecy rather than with public and Congressional knowledge
  • Prevent resistance to fracking
  • Impede efforts to protect the environment from further degradation
  • Supercede domestic laws that protect the public on a broad range of issues including heathcare, financial, energy, telecommunications, patents, copyrights, food and product standards, land use and natural resources, licensing, immigration, government procurement
  • Establish the investor-state of new multi-national corporate rights enforced by a tribunal of corporate lawyers
  • Create the corporate class as a class immune to government regulation
    Create global colonial exploitation

Take Action! Sierra Club recommends requesting from your Congressional representatives a copy of the TPP draft text and urging them not to allow TPP's "fast tracking" when President Obama asks them to approve it. Fast Track (Trade Promotion Authority) is a procedure used by Presidents to force "trade" treaties (often times covering much more than trade) through Congress and upon the American people. Under this Nixon-era procedure, the President negotiates treaties with the countries he wants, signs them, and gives Congress 90-days to approve the treaty with limited debate, no amendments by Congress, and no public comment.

Citizens Trade Campaign provides this link to oppose fast tracking and you can also add your request for a copy of the TPP draft text: http://org.salsalabs.com
