[Updated} Stop The TPP - A Call For Action [VIDEO] All The Action You Can Take Included

It's time to get serious about the TPP.


December 9, 2013
(Updated: December 27, 2013 11:25am)

Andrew V Pontbriand

The TPP, or Trans Pacific Partnership is on it's way to being fast tracked this week, and could be pushed through via POTUS as soon as today.

The TPP, is one of the most secretive trade deals since NAFTA and GAT, that the Clinton Administration was largely responsible for, although it is well understood these plans go back many decades and are just now being primed to become operational.

Wikileaks, has released two sets of documents concerning the TPP, in an attempt to release the information so people can become aware of what it is all about. You can find the first leak here.






It is now time to get on the phone and call your local representatives and congressman, and make a fuss about the TPP as much as possible. Call floods, Twitter hashtags, Facebook posts, article write-ups, and even making short videos to share all over social media can help to slow down the nearly inevitable Trade Agreement that seeks to limit Internet Freedoms, among other viscous freedom restricting provisions.
