“TTIP is being negotiated in secret. Our elected representatives in the House of Commons are not allowed to see the draft negotiating texts. Our elected representatives in the European parliament had to hold a demonstration in the European Parliament before being granted permission to see these texts in January this year.”
Sound familiar? Different nations & governing bodies but precisely the same modus operandi. This is about the corporate 1% shutting out the will of citizens.
And this is also a right-on assessment:
“People do not want a trade deal which lowers hard won food, environmental and labour standards; weakens public services; or gives new powers to corporations to sue governments if public policy harms their profits (known as Investor State Dispute Settlement or ISDS).”
While articles like this one show up added to those demonstrating how Canada’s Harper is defunding climate scientists in order to keep the public in the dark about environmental concerns, added to those about Greece getting the short end of the Shock Doctrine stick… they make it EVIDENT that the protocols being imposed by the 1% in their goal of instituting a New World Order go much further than American voters.
Nonetheless, ding-dongs like Andrew Boston who’s no doubt paid to post that nonsense–over and over again–might ask their bosses for updated Talking Points.
