Reporter, Film Maker (The Secret of OZ, The Money Masters, Jekyll Island), Bill Still Reports on the disaster that is the Trans-Pacific Trade Agreement. In this 8-minute segment, Still manages to capture much of the worst of TPP - including how it will criminalize much of the internet (yes, including what might appear on Opednews if it's not 100% original content), end consumer protections by reducing them to the lowest international common denominator, allow banks to bypass any meaningful regulation, and even end our food protections. Congress is not even allowed to talk about this, and barely allowed to even look at the TPP agreement. News that China and third world countries now want in on the deal can only mean we will be seeing even lower standards of environmental and consumer protections.
The dangerous scope of this "NAFTA on steroids" deal is almost impossible to overstate. Perhaps people aren't more incensed about TPP because they don't know, or because they can't believe it, but as Still says, TPP must be stopped! - Ed: Scott Baker
The TPP will be as bad for America as the European Union was for the sovereignty in European countries.
