The outrageous Trans-Pacific Treaty being pushed by the Obama Administration, if it passes, will outlaw local, state, and even national efforts to protect food, air, water—all our natural resources—as it simultaneously bestows the corporation with more power than even nation-states and disembowels democracy. Very telling is the fact that the negotiations for this multi-national treaty have been conducted in secret, and the only reason any of us know what is in it is the fact that some of the document thankfully leaked, revealing the brazen agenda of the 1% behind this coup.
Nothing more urgently requires our attention at the present time than this treaty and the loss of civil liberties because together, they form a frightening picture of world government a la The Corporation who, armed with new powers to control, exploit, and force its will on people as well as on the earth, will be virtually unstoppable since citizens are being stripped of our rights and disempowered. The U. S., predictably, is leading the way for the most extreme provisions of this “agreement” between governments (over the will of their respective peoples) of New Zealand, Peru, Chile, and Vietnam, among others, and is attempting to add as many countries as possible to the list, including China.
We the People must wake up and end this attempt at world domination NOW; otherwise I fear we will lose all of our freedoms and ability to affect not only our lives but the fate of the planet, permanently. Nothing emphasizes the urgency of a constitutional amendment abolishing corporate “personhood” and ties it to every effort to reclaim our right to a safe and healthy environment, or any kind of a life, more than this treaty. It is imperative that we make sure that the dark motives behind it are exposed and that we abolish corporate personhood; otherwise this is just a preview of similar power grabs we can expect in the future.
We must stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership and Occupy the next meeting in San Diego which takes place the week of July 2-10–OCCUPY TRADE AGREEMENTS !
