The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), is a trade deal proposed with 12 countries in the Asia-Pacific region including third world countries such as Vietnam and Brunei. The agreement has largely been negotiated in secret, though 600 corporate lobbyists have been allowed in. This has angered many who are concerned about what damaging details may be included in the deal, and the little bit we know for sure confirms these suspicions.

We have been hearing endlessly about the ebola outbreak and Kim Kardashian’s attempt to break the internet. Instead of informing us important news that is vital to our nation, the mainstream media distracts us with these trivial news stories. The mainstream media refuses to inform us about the largest international trade agreement in history, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). President Barack Obama is secretly negotiating this trade agreement alongside with 600 corporate lobbyists. Only until recently have our elected officials been allowed to sit in the meetings as long as they don’t take any notes nor talk to their staffers about it. The TPP is potentially the most dangerous economic treaty of our lives and no one is talking about it.
