Video – One of the most devastating blows to US sovereignty since the country’s founding was dealt on June 24, 2015, as the Senate passed the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, which as been one of the Obama Administration’s top priorities. It covers 12 countries and more than 40% of the world’s economy. This secretive bill has been debated and opposed for over 10 years for many reasons:
“The TPP as it stands does not even require member nations to uphold commitments to global environmental agreements, such the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). Criticism of the TPP goes well-beyond environmental issues, however. Many groups have complained of the investor-state settlement agreement in the plan that allows corporations to sue countries when contracts are breached. Critics of this model say it benefits foreign investors as they expense of human rights, working conditions, and the environment. Negotiations have also been blasted for being held completely behind closed doors, with some U.S. Senators complaining that multinational corporations are privy to the negotiations while the U.S. Congress is left in the dark.” (Source)
