Citizens Trade Campaign planned to deliver a petition this week in Dallas demanding that U.S. officials move the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Free Trade Agreement negotiations into the light of day. The public can sign the petition now.
CTC reports that trade negotiators from throughout the Pacific Rim are meeting in Texas for a critical summit aimed at rushing the TPP toward completion. The pact is reportedly already 75% complete, with some 26 separate chapters that will likely affect jobs, wages, agriculture, migration, consumer safety, the environment, financial regulations, internet freedom, access to medicine, indigenous rights, public procurement and more in our communities and throughout the world.
