TPP Text Released (11/5/15): Media Coverage and Press Releases

TPP text is released and it worse than we thought. Read the text here. The deal will undermine worker protections, environmental and food regulations, access to medicine, internet freedom, and give corporations the right to sue governments for any law that gets in the way of their profits. Activists call for major protests in Washington DC from November 14-18.
