Tom Tomorrow comic explains the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
If you’re a progressive, this Tom Tomorrow comic will scare you.
Worked out in secret by government negotiators and corporate lobbyists, the TPP would supersede U.S. laws. It would offshore jobs and undermine wages. It would expose public health and environmental safeguards and consumer protections like net neutrality to repeal by pro-corporate tribunals above our judicial system.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) should scare you. And, if you’re a customer of Big Telecom, the secrecy should infuriate you, because while the general public can’t see this, many corporations like AT&T and Verizon have. Unlike other phone companies, CREDO Mobile opposes fast track. We’ve mobilized over 346,000 activists to sign petitions and generated over 17,000 calls to members of Congress to voice opposition to it.
If you’re not with us already, switch to CREDO Mobile. We’re the phone company that’s fighting against this secretive trade deal.
