I'm sorry to tell you that in spite of millions of us coming together,
our representatives have ignored our voices and just finalised text for the disastrous TPP deal.
But it ain't over till it's over.
Every one of the 12 TPP countries still has to ratify the deal before it goes into force, which means
there's still a great chance for us to stop it.
we're not going to stop fighting until this deal is dead and buried. We're going to use all of our energy to push as hard as we can to make sure that the TPP isn't ratified in all 12 TPP countries.
Will you join us and say NO to the TPP?
Honestly, we're still in shock after today's announcement. We don't know exactly what's in the finalised text, but what we've seen of this secretive trade deal reads like a giant corporate wish list.
You know what adds insult to injury?
Experts are saying it could be 30 days before we even get a look at what's actually written in the deal.
That means we have to wait a month to learn what we already know: Attacks on access to affordable medicine and food safety standards. And we can expect corporations to sue our governments when we pass laws to protect ourselves if its affects their profits.
This sweeping deal circumvents the democratic process, and it affects every single one of us.
SumOfUs has been opposed to the TPP from the beginning -- this type of massive corporate giveaway is exactly why we started this community. Across the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, tens or even hundreds of thousands of SumOfUs members have taken a stand against TPP: by chipping in with small donations, signing petitions, or even turning up outside the talks to make sure they didn't happen in secret.
Because we're global,
we're extremely well placed to fight this deal. If just one of the TPP countries doesn't ratify the deal, it doesn't pass. We know we have the power to help stop it.
Send a powerful message to our leaders: we don't want the TPP!
