Not a Sierra Club event. TPP would give corporations in the 12 member countries (Japan, Australia, Vietnam, Singapore, etc.) the right to sue the U.S. government any time a law or regulation interfered with its “right” to make a profit. Here's an example: Already under NAFTA the Canadian company Enbridge is suing because President Obama turned down the XL pipeline, and poor Enbridge lost its hoped-for future profits. The TPP gives new tools to corporations to attack any controls on them that we have fought for and won over the last century. Why would we be for such a law? Ian Robinson, head of the Washtenaw Area Labor Federation (AFL-CIO) will fill us in on what TPP is and how to stop it. If you would like a speaker on TPP for your organization, call Jane Slaughter at 313-318-1171.
