The United States is negotiating three massive international treaties–the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trade-in-Services Agreement (TiSA). These deals are crafted in secret by multinational corporations and big bankers for their own benefit at our expense. They will expand global corporate rule, harming the planet and people everywhere, and destroying democracy.
“From November 14 to 18, 2015, people will converge on Washington, DC to demand that the United States drop these deals and create, in a transparent and democratic way, alternative international agreements that put people and the planet first. Our actions coincide with the APEC meetings in the Philippines, where US officials (including trade reps) will push the TPP, and our Philippine allies will have mass protests.
“The TPP, TTIP, & TiSA are much more than trade deals–only 5 of the 29 TPP chapters even deal with trade. They are corporate power grabs that impacts every aspect of our lives. If passed, the TPP, TTIP, & TiSA would take away environmental protections, offshore American jobs & decrease wages, remove food safety laws, curtail internet freedom, inhibit access to lifesaving medicine, spur further financial deregulation and more. Under Obama’s recent Fast Track bill these treaties would even ban climate action and immigration reform.”
