. Please take this opportunity to tell the U.S. Trade Representative that you oppose giving corporations new tools for attacking important environmental protections.

From: Citizens Trade Campaign:
Once again, transnational corporations are hoping that a free trade agreement will become a back-door means for them to force environmental deregulation this time through a massive new pact with the European Union.
The federal government is currently conducting an environmental review of the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and part of that review includes accepting public comments.
The public review period currently underway specifically asks for comments on what the "scope" of the TTIP's environmental review should be. We need your help demanding that this review not only investigate TTIP's environmental chapter, but also explore the implications of:

A so-called "investment" chapter that would enable transnational corporations to challenge both existing and future climate, clean water, clean air, food safety, habitat protection and other environmental policies as "expropriations" and to demand taxpayer compensation through private tribunals that circumvent our judicial system: and

A so-called "regulatory cooperation" chapter that would enable corporations and foreign governments to inject years of delay into what is an already abysmally-slow process for developing new public interest regulations in the United States.

Corporations already have enough power over U.S. policy-making without trade agreements giving them special rights

Noted and signed petition but I doubt it will do any good. I believe we have a corporate government and they will do what is good for corporations and not what is good for us or the environment.

This country is not run by any pres., past, present or the future. Wall Street does that all for the name of corporations.

The US Trade Representative is a bag boy for the oligarchs; he only hears his masters' voices. He is an instrument of the worst excesses of toxic capitalism, and nothing less than profound #SystemChange will protect any of us, much less the environment, from the global enslavement and exploitation that these dangerous trade policies represent.

Anyone that wants to stop these deadly processes from unfolding and pushing all of us over the abyss into extinction needs to take action and throw all the capitalists out of office. #VoteGreen or vote Socialist Alternative Party or vote any third party of your choice, but don't vote for the vipers of the Two Party Sham.
