[SDCPJ] Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Teach-In WED 6-9p in Hillcrest


Here are details for the next Teach-In on the Trans-Pacific
Partnership tomorrow (Wed) evening, featuring Brooke Harper from
Global Trade Watch:

Wednesday
6:00pm until 9:00pm
Canvas for a Cause
Join Canvas for A Cause, WOSD, and Occupy San Diego as we host our
third in a series of teach-outs/discussions on the TPP, Trans Pacific
Partnership with Brooke Harper from Global Trade Watch

Address: 3705 10th Ave, San Diego.

"From July 2 to July 10, the political leaders of the Pacific Rim
nations are meeting in San Diego to turn the Pacific Ocean and its
peoples into a giant privatized corporate lake characterized by non-
union workers, Wal-Mart supply chain feeders, poisoned, landless
agricultural laborers, a dying biodiversity, and rising, drowning sea
levels. We cannot and will not let this happen.

The TPP meeting is officially referred to as the 13th Round of the
Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Talks. The Trans Pacific Partnership
would create a super-treaty which would jeopardize the sovereignty of
the nations involved by giving that power to large corporations like
Wal Mart, Warners, Sony, BP, JP Morgan, AIG, Veoilia, and Monsanto.

There are currently 9 nations involved: US, New Zealand, Australia,
Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. Japan, Canada
and Mexico have shown interest.
The economic power of this group is more than 40% larger than the 27-
nation European Union.
The TPP would offshore millions of good-paying jobs to low-wage
nations and under-cut working conditions globally increasing
unemployment and union labors.
Allow foreign firms the ability to acquire land, natural resources,
and factories without government reviews
USTR (US Trade Representatives) are pushing for TPP countries to
expand pharmaceutical monopoly protections and institute longer
patents that will decrease access to affordable medications
The U.S. would agree to waive Buy America procurement policies for all
of the firms operating in the TPP countries
Limit food GMO labeling and allow the import of goods that do not meet
US safe standards.
Excessive copyright rights and enforcement which would affect the
ability of creators to create content, stifle innovative technological
products, and that ability of users to use content in new ways.
Would institute CISPA like regulations and "3 strikes" internet
measures kicking people off the internet after committing three
infringement violations.
It would roll back Wall Street, and prohibit ban on risky financial
services."
