No Back Room Deals for the 1%
The vast majority of Americans have been barred by the U.S. Trade Representative from reviewing its proposals for the massive new Trans-Pacific Free Trade Agreement. Meanwhile, approximately 600 corporate lobbyists have regular access to the negotiating texts as so-called "cleared advisors." Please help put an end to this type of back room dealmaking by demanding that negotiators release the texts.
Americans deserve the right to know what U.S. trade negotiators are proposing in our name.
The Trans-Pacific Free Trade Agreement is likely to impact jobs, wages, agriculture, migration, the environment, access to medicine, consumer safety, banking regulations, indigenous rights, Internet freedom, government procurement and more. A pact this far-reaching should be negotiated in the most transparent and participatory manner possible.
Please publicly release all Trans-Pacific Free Trade Agreement proposals now.
