  • Trans-Pacific Partnership:
    Trading Away Our Right to Protect the Environment, Animals & Food Safety!


    TPP is an international agreement currently being negotiated by the US and 11 other countries.  Described as  "NAFTA on Steroids", TPP will:

    - give corporations in TPP nations the power to attack other TPP nations' environmental laws in international tribunals, threatening bans on hydrofracking and other dangerous practices.

    - lower or eliminate import tariffs on factory farmed animal products and industrially produced, genetically modified grains, wiping out family farms and expanding market share for he most inhumane and unstainable forms of agriculture.

    - promote "harmonization" of food safety standards, forcing countries to drop bans on the importation of genetically modified food, meat from animals treated with dangerous drugs, and other unsafe foods.
