A multi-partisan activist group established to expose and resist US imperialism, corpora-terrorism, and the New World Order

It's time to flush away the TPP | 07 May 2015 | The TPP has little to do with trade. Of 29 draft chapters, only five deal with traditional trade issues…Much of the pact focuses instead on outsized “investor rights.” The TPP [Trans-Pacific Partnership] would grant foreign corporations extraordinary new powers to challenge the laws we rely on for a clean environment, essential services and healthy communities. Foreign corporations would be empowered to bypass domestic courts and directly “sue” the U.S. government before an extrajudicial tribunal of private corporate lawyers sitting outside any domestic legal system and not accountable to any electorate, system of legal precedent or meaningful conflict-of-interest rules.
