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!
