Exposing the TPPA. Top secret trade agenda revealed by Truthout, call the TPPA (Trans-Pacific Trade Act) that extends extraordinary rights to corporations. And it’s all happening in secret, even from Congress.
What TPPA Will do:
1. limit regulations on foriegn corporations operating on US soil – granting them greater rights beyond what US firms. 2. extend incentives to outsourcing to low wage countries. 3. establish an alternative legal system to give new rights to circumvent US courts and laws and to sue the US govt for loss of profits
Who decided? Not our representatives, not us… the corporations wrote the rules of the TPPA.
These days, many people are concerned about the carbon footprint they leave. Now that concern is extending to the last thing we do on Earth—burial. Funeral authority and author of A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die, Gail Rubin gives us the inside scoop on green burial and the surprising harm conventional funerals inflict on the environment.
And more on the TPPA.
