Wow, we had heard that ObamaBush was bullying other countries, but to actually see it and see the other countries calling him out on it. This is incredible! Passing the links on and looking for any new TPP petitions on the collective since I am out there. Word of encouragement to the ladies here. Have seen your group mentioned in a few places. So please do not think that people do not see your work! It is being seen and noticed in many places. It is an open group and many people would try to speak anonymously. It's a good thing you have people remain in the open to speak in the group. Keeps everyone on the right track ! You have a great group here

I have been trying to keep up with what's going on with the TPP, but there is alot to keep up with as can be seen by Roxy's postings here.  I received this email this morning and have sent an email to Stan McCoy and the USTR Office and will try and make a call as well. I am posting for you here what I received. Here is the link:


http://us2.campaign-archive2.com/?u=33602bebba8fb7dd6e71fb413&id=1090af2734&e=f5365441c6


US Trade Representative Stan McCoy is bullying other countries to accept patent provisions that will keep medical care out of the hands of people in the US and around the world. Tell Stan it's time for a new plan that puts people before profits!

This week, Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiators have been meeting in Salt Lake City to hash out the final details of the TPP before the end of the year. They have been 'welcomed' with daily creative protests. We understand that the protests are giving negotiators from other countries the courage to stand up to the US.

However, word leaked out yesterday that the US negotiators are using outrageous bullying tactics to force other countries to accept exorbitant patent protections that will keep the cost of healthcare and medical treatments high and out of our reach. This hurts everyone!

The bullying is being led by Stan McCoy of the Office of the US Trade Representative. As a former employee of Covington and Burling, the world's largest defender of Pharma's profits, McCoy is accustomed to doing whatever it takes to protect his clients profits, even at the expense of human suffering and lives.

The US has 20 staffers at the negotiations while other countries have one or a few. “The US has adopted a strategy of exhaustion in its bullying of negotiators on the crucial intellectual property chapter to force countries to trade away health in the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement negotiations in Salt Lake City,” according to Professor Jane Kelsey from the University of Auckland, New Zealand, who is monitoring the negotiations. ”The US has stepped up its aggression...." 

“This is a loaded game,” Professor Kelsey said. “McCoy sets the agenda and timetable. Negotiators are working from morning until late at night and preparing to work all night, if necessary." Kelsey says that McCoy ignores proposals from other countries and has extended the talks so that negotiators from some poorer countries cannot be present.

This is wrong! Tell Stan that we need a new plan - one that puts people before profits!

You can write to Stan McCoy here: smccoy@ustr.eop.gov and include the USTR office at correspondence@ustr.eop.gov. And you can call McCoy here: 202-395-4510.

It only takes a few minutes and thousands of emails and calls will make a difference. Please contact Stan McCoy and urge your friends to do the same.

Petition: Stop 'NAFTA on steroids'!

Stop 'NAFTA on steroids'!

Stop 'NAFTA on steroids'

.

Right now, negotiations for what's being called "NAFTA on steroids," the Trans-Pacific Partnership, are being conducted in secret. The corporate lobbyists pushing this agreement include a who's who list of Big Oil, Big Ag and Wall Street power brokers.
.
The US negotiators have granted approximately 600 corporate lobbyists access to the negotiating texts while flatly refusing to tell the public what they have been proposing in our names. Why the secrecy? Probably because, at the behest of companies like Cargill, U.S. trade negotiators are pushing hard for the Trans-Pacific Partnership to include so-called "investor-state" provisions that would grant transnational corporations the power to challenge virtually any environmental law, regulation or court decision that negatively affects their expectation of profits.
.
Take action now to demand that the text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement be made public, that existing free trade agreements be fixed, and that the administration stop pursuing new ones that are even more damaging to the environment. Send a message to US trade negotiator Ron Kirk and Cargill's Chief Trade Lobbyist Devry Boughner and tell them the Trans-Pacific Partnership is the wrong direction for America and the environment.

Just a quick note to say that I think I've signed and shared all petitions, pledges and articles; hopefully anyway. I've been signing petitions against the TPP and sharing these types of articles for some time. As I'm sure everyone here feels the same way about this, I'm very worried. It will be interesting to see whether I get a response from my request to senators for a copy of the draft TPP. If we think corporations have too much control now, just let this damn thing go through and we'll see corporate control over our lives as we've never seen.

The secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership : TAKE ACTION
1 year ago

Submit your comment on the TPP to the Canada Trade Agreements Secretariat

 

http://action.sumofus.org/a/harper-secret-deal/?sub=homepage

 

URGENT: Harper is trying to quietly sneak through an environmental assessment of a trade deal that will open up Canada to lawsuits for laws that protect our environment, jobs, and our economy. Add your voice to the TPP’s environmental assessment now.

 

 

The Canada Trade Agreement Secretariat has an open comment process on the TPP -- and we've set up a quick-and-easy form for you to submit your commentsthrough on the right! 

Here are some points you can add to your submission to the Trade Agreements and NAFTA Secretariat. Feel free to use any or none of these points -- the more you can write the letter in your own words, the more powerful it will be.
 
  • The TPP is an ambitious free trade agreement, with a far-reaching scope in respect of the environment, biodiversity and climate change
  • The TPP could restrict the ability of future governments to legislate for the good of the environment.
  • Leaked details of the TPP reveal that foreign investors and firms could sue Canada in private international tribunals outside of our legal system if their parliaments or local councils pass laws that reduce their profits or adversely affect their businesses. 
  • Trade deals like the secretive and extreme Canada-China FIPA and TPP use investor-state dispute settlement, which allows unaccountable, for-profit arbitrators the right to decide the fate of laws in Canada designed to protect our families, environment and future. 
  • While representatives of major corporations have access to the text, democratically elected members of parliament, advocacy organizations for the environment and ordinary citizens are being shut out.
  • The TPP could constrain efforts to regulate the exploitation of the tar sands, and as such it has profound environmental impacts for Canada. It could also dramatically increase exports of bitumen and liquefied natural gas to overseas markets without any domestic oversight.
  • As the TPP is being negotiated in secret, the texts of the chapters are also secret. How can Canadians comment on the environmental impacts of a secretive trade deal that the government refuses to release the text of? The text should be available to the public immediately.  
  • Governments, including the US, have opened up to the public in the past by releasing the draft text of agreements. In 2001, all nine chapters of the Free Trade Area of the Americas Agreement were released. This was called an 'important step' that would make the trade negotiation process 'more transparent and accessible'. Why can the Canadian government not meet the same standard for public accountability as practiced in 2001?

    

The Canada Trade Agreement Secretariat has an open comment process on the TPP -- and we've set up a quick-and-easy form for you to submit your comments through on the right! 

Here are some points you can add to your submission to the Trade Agreements and NAFTA Secretariat. Feel free to use any or none of these points -- the more you can write the letter in your own words, the more powerful it will be.
  • The TPP is an ambitious free trade agreement, with a far-reaching scope in respect of the environment, biodiversity and climate change

Don’t Let Them Trade Away Our Internet Freedoms: Speak Out Against the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement!

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a trade agreement currently being negotiated in secret by the United States and ten other countries.
Leaked language from the agreement’s intellectual property chapter has been worrisome enough—and the public has no idea what is in the latest official draft, or even what the U.S. Trade Representative is pushing for in this agreement. There has been zero transparency in a process that is being pushed to the finish.
What’s worse is that the people who do have access to TPP’s official language are the same content industry executives that tried pushing through harmful laws like SOPA, PIPA, and ACTA. The rest of us will continue to be kept in the dark unless we speak up now.
Join us in demanding an end to these backroom negotiations.

Check out our infographic explaining how the TPP would trade away our Internet freedom:
