Beware the Trans-Pacific-Partnership (TPP)

It’s time to wake up America.  Have you heard of the Trans-Pacific-Partnership?  No neither had I until a friend of mine in Germany brought it to my attention.  And there’s a good reason we haven’t heard so much about it in the USA.  Here are some links that provide some of the details about this murky trade agreement that appears to be moving fast “under the radar” to avoid public scrutiny.

Take action to stop the TPP now!

I found the last link particularly interesting because it was an article published by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an organization dedicated to free speech and protecting the rights of all internet users.

Be informed.  Read about this issue and then take action.  Write to your elected representatives asking them to hold public hearings on this trade agreement and to stop this agreement from moving forward.
