Secret TPP, TTIP Face Global Opposition.

by Jerry Alatalo

“Everything secret degenerates; nothing is safe that does not bear discussion and publicity.”

– LORD ACTON (1834-1902) English historian

Cumberland IslandThose pushing for passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) – the two largest, ultra-secret trade deals of all time – in the age of the internet are feeling what in military terms is described as “blowback”.  Thanks to everyone in the United States and Europe who have demanded the deals become published and available to the public, including elected representatives, before any possible passage can occur. Every man and woman around the world with real concerns about the deceptive manner in which these legal contracts have become foisted on the people must now increase opposition efforts until morality and ethics prevail.

Elected representatives in the United States and Europe who’ve cast their votes in favor of passage owe their constituents both a lot of explaining and a lot of apologizing for going along with such massive deception. A five-year old child has more sense of the difference between right and wrong. To traitorous politicians in America and Europe: the voting public will not forget such clear betrayal of trust, so save yourself the trouble of raising funds for the next election campaign – by your undemocratic actions you’ve sealed and guaranteed your own political fall.

Thanks again to the good citizens and leaders who’ve fought these despicable legal assaults on democracy from day one.

  1. I don’t agree with Sanders that TPP is automatic if fast track passes. Japan is still holding out on the agricultural subsidies (they’re facing a major citizens-initiated lawsuit). And Malaysia can’t be included based on the version of fast track the Senate passed – it prohibits the US from signing any trade agreement with a country that tolerates slavery.

    1. Stuart,
      Good for the Japanese people and refusing to put up with such unbelievable deception. Seems many people around the world have for years been discussing plans to reverse corporate dominance in the variety of avenues transnationals have used for increased profits. Once the listeners started hearing and reading more B R I C S, then the corporate law engineers began creating the trade deals. The entire underhanded process has done more to damage the reputations of corporations than anything in recent history and will likely result in more pushback. Truly astounding historical events.
      Thanks,
      Jerry
