The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is
a free-trade agreement currently being negotiated in secret by over
600 corporations and pushed through Congress without oversight from
the public. It threatens workers' rights, the environment, the safety
of food and medicines, and the most fundamental democratic rights of
all the countries that sign onto this binding agreement. We need to
learn about the TPP, spread the word, and stop it!
