PDA San Francisco - Meeting and Public Forum!

“What Is the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and

Why Are People Saying All Those Terrible Things About It?”

“What Is the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and Why Are People Saying All Those Terrible Things About It?” is a public forum focusing on key elements of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the multi-national “free trade” agreement strongly supported by corporations, banks and powerful government officials. Negotiations to finalize and implement the deal are taking place behind closed doors: a select group of corporate advisors can see the text, while everyone else is excluded. The Forum will reveal how the TPP can affect the lives of millions of people and what can be done to stop it.
