Help fight TPP

From Demand Progress:

The final Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement could be just days away—and it’s going to take a major last-minute push to stop it.

Right now, corporate lobbyists and government officials are meeting behind closed doors in Hawaii to hammer out the final details of this massive corporate trade deal.

They've set a goal of finalizing the TPP by this Saturday—yet not one word of the agreement or the negotiations has been made public.

Hundreds of thousands of Demand Progress members have weighed in against the TPP, and we're pushing hard to stop this massive corporate giveaway.

Will you chip in $5 to help stop the secret TPP corporate trade deal?

The reason the TPP is being written in secret is because they know if the public knew the truth, there would be a huge corporate backlash.

Thanks to leaks by courageous whistleblowers, we do know some of the details.1 And it’s not pretty.

Draft versions of the TPP would:

•Allow corporations to sue sovereign governments to overturn democratically enacted protections for the environment and consumers.
•Sneak in SOPA-like attacks on Internet freedom.
•Overturn protections against Wall Street recklessness.
•Reduce penalties on human trafficking.2

That’s why the TPP is being called “NAFTA on steroids.”

A final deal on the TPP could be literally days away. Will you chip in $5 for our last-minute final push to stop it?

Yes, I'll chip in $5 to help stop the secret TPP corporate trade deal.

Thanks for standing with us.
