Quote:Kiss your freedom goodbye:
    "The agreement also regulates the internet and requires internet companies to gather certain data which they will be required to share with certain private companies.  Many of the provisions will not only be secret before the vote in the House, but will also be kept secret for four years after the bill is signed. That means we wonâ€t know whatâ€s in it even after itâ€s passed."
Wikileaks has gotten their hands on a copy of Obamaâ€s phony TPP trade bill.  It contains 29 chapters but only 5 pertain to trade.  Wikileaks will be publishing the entire bill and they have already released the chapter on Investment.  Itâ€s very interesting.  It is written in a such a way as to give multinational companies a huge advantage on trade.  If a public hospital is built close to a private one, the private hospital has the right to sue the country for expected losses.

The idiots that finally got the confederate flag banned and gay marriage accepted will be too busy celebrating their minor victories to do any complaining about TPP, which was, of course, the whole point of both of those things happening.

Here's some more information:

Quote:Obama just signed a law allowing him to fast track TPP and other "trade agreements", allowing him to accept it with just a simple majority.
>what is TPP?
Only a small part of TPP is actually about trade, and it will affect every aspect of your life from healthcare to food to chan culture and, of course, videogames.
>TPP threatens fair use
From chan culture to youtubers, this could make bethesda's paid mods something you'd call "good old times".
>TPP will allow a corporation to sue a state over potential losses caused by its legislation
This won't happen in a court of your own country, this will place an international court above your laws. Consumer rights, from food to your favourite hobby, will be raped mercilessly. Think it's bad now? You haven't seen anything.
>TPP will make it easier to outsource labor in asia
From governmental contracts to code monkeys trough services, you will be competing with third-world slave labor and buying its products. Should you be able to afford it and have some free time as your working hours get closer to those of Vietnam
>AHAHAH I will still be pirating stuff anyway
No you won't. TPP can force your ISP to monitor your activity, and fine you or even send you to jail. It will be possibile to fine you even just for copying a DVD you own to your hard drive. It's SOPA and all that shit right back from the dead.
>I don't believe you OP, I want to read what it says!
Well too fucking bad, because it isn't just secret, it will remain secret for four years after it's accepted. Talk about transparency. However a small part has been leaked, you can read more here:
And some articles:
>I'm in EU, who gives a shit!
TTIP is the same shit EU-flavoured and it's going to hurt you. It will be negotiated by that most democratic institution called the european commission, so you know you're fucked.


> Ministers set to discuss TPP in late July
> The United States will host a meeting of trade ministers from a proposed Pacific Rim trade bloc at the end of July.
> The ministers from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will meet in Maui, Hawaii, from 28 to 31 July.
> The controversial and secret TPP talks cover nations that account for 40 percent of the world's economy, including New Zealand.
> With US President Barack Obama now having the power to conclude trade pacts under so-called fast track authority, hopes have been raised a deal can be struck soon.



> Broad TPP deal could be reached end-July, says Japan minister
> Tokyo willing to ‘play the last card†at planned ministerial meeting of Pacific Rim countries on July 28-29.
> One negotiating source said the ministerial meeting will take place for two days through July 29, but Mr Amari said it is undecided how long the negotiations will last.
> Mr Amari told a press conference yesterday that Japan is willing to “play the last card” at the planned ministerial meeting to end the prolonged TPP negotiations, and urged other members of the initiative to do so as well.
> The talks among ministerial-level officials from the 12 countries will follow “several days of meetings there between chief negotiators” for the TPP, according to a report by the Inside US Trade magazine.
> Mr Gary Hufbauer, a senior fellow at the Institute of International Economics, said the planned high-level negotiating session suggests officials from most or all the countries believe an agreement is within reach now.
> The US and Japan, which are still at odds over some issues, will resume their talks on Thursday in Tokyo to settle disputes over Japanâ€s exceptional tariffs on some agricultural products and what the US calls non-tariff barriers in the Japanese automotive industry.
> Mr Obama wants the ambitious 12-nation TPP, which includes Australia, Canada, Vietnam, Singapore and New Zealand, to be a central part of his administrationâ€s foreign policy pivot to Asia and help serve as a counterweight to the economic might of China.

Hate to bump, but...Bumping this thread. Everyone needs to see this, as futile as it may seem now, the more who know the higher the chances we have of getting enough of the public aware of this shit so it can be stopped.
