ThIs is a good read on all that's wrong with TPP. The real villain here is our very own U.S. Trade Representative http://injustice.org/archives/26253.
My new phone is all but impossible to use so I will try a third time. http://infojustice.org/archives/26253
Thanks Chris, the whole TPP is a new thing for me and I find myself learning a whole bunch of new stuff.
Here are some articles/videos which I found regarding the TPP, basically these guys are ape shit going after more natural resources, privatizing them, exploting the land, and wanting control of the whole market (and that is just the start of it).
I shall post some of those articles here in the forums in a little bit.
Yes, it sounds like a repeat of WTO which energized many activists back in 1999. Maybe like NAFTA too but I'm ignorant of NAFTA. WTO forced nations that wished to be included roll back their environmental regulations. Down and dirty. I'm afraid the the "secret" part of the talks will do somewhat the same again. I was "asleep" during the WTO mess. Actvist San Diego has its roots in Pat Barnes getting involved protesting WTO. Some folks care more about local issues, some more about intenational problems like TPP. I need to learn more and Occupy the media with this stuff. BTW, David's idea is one long overdue. It's another means of outreach if not to recruit new Occupiers to wake up some open minds out there.
On. check http://www.ustr.gov/tpp, July 2 - July 10
Good question. Why meet here when they apparently met in Texas earlier this month? Maybe we got bad info on meetings here shortly?
WOSD is forming a group. I sent WOSD this:
Brooke explains the details of the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFkOJudVxNM&feature=youtu.be They will be here in San Diego!Round 13: Trans Pacific Partnership Set for San Diego, CA July 2-10http://www.ustr.gov/tpp I just had this sent back.Dear All - I will be calling Brooke in the next few days and coordinating action in San Diego when the negotiations come to San Diego on July 2-10. Please let me know if you want to participate in planning this action! So far, I have Masada, Sada Anand Kaur, and Tammy on the list. There is a lot at stake. Secret negotiations are being held by Obama with the Pacific rim countries and the rumors that that they will allow corporations to waive compliance with environmental regulations, allow the Internet to be policed and eventually charge us for using it, and lots more restrictions that will negatively affect jobs, will extend drug patents so there will be no generic drugs, and will limit our ability to sue corporations, will create private courts, etc.! The TPP is a further takeover of the global economy by corporations. Please watch Brooke on the YouTube video below and sign up! BTW this is Tammy
private international corps gain can sue countries breaking the new trade agreements (meetings in San Diego July 2 to 4 )
private international corps gain suing rights on countries breaking the new trade agreements (meetings in San Diego July 2 to 4 )
San Diego July 2 to 10 )
So it looks like the kickoff meeting ("Direct Stakeholder Engagement event") is going to be at that monstrosity, the Bayfront Hilton southeast of the Convention Center on Harbor Drive. Website says more info to follow. http://www.ustr.gov/trade-agreements/free-trade-agreements/trans-pacific-partnership/direct-stakholder-engagement
Hello all, just a thought that we could start compiling links to articles, pictures and videos from the TPP Week of Actions!!!!
