The #TPP is the most important piece of legislation of our Lifetime. Don’t sit idle, while the 600 multi-national corporations that designed this act in secret, are effecting the most insidious coup d’etat of all times.
Sadly, the corporate media is concentrating on some bogus scandal du jour, while the Obama administration is working hard to fast track this through Congress, without revealing any details about it.
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.

Bush as a champion of the flawed and offensive ideology of corporate globalization.http://www.dissentmagazine.org/blog/president-obama-corporate-globalizer
