Petition Statement

The Obama administration is currently negotiating, in secret, a massive so-called free trade agreement named the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). TPP leaks indicate that this agreement would greatly empower corporations by virtually eliminating consumer, health, safety, labor, privacy, and environmental regulations, and would TAKE AWAY LOCAL GOVERNMENTAL POWERS along with those at every other level. In essence, this would be a global corporate coup.
There are currently 179 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

I have been closely following what little is being leaked and reading reports about the super-secret Trans Pacific Partnership and Transatlantic Free Trade Area.

I have participated in a national coalition of interested citizens groups. I am adamantly against Fast Track of TPP and, of course, the TPP itself, as well as the TAFTA free trade agreement. I fear the loss of sovereignty of our governmental structures from bottom to top to multinational Corporations. We stand close to losing not only of our governmental sovereignty, but also of the very soul of our country and the ruin of our beautiful blue planet. This cannot be allowed to be perpetrated.

In order to get this through Congress, President Obama will be asking Congress to approve Fast Track legislation. We urge mayors across Texas to oppose this power grab, and Texas' senators and representatives in Congress must vote NO on Fast Track legislation.
