Petition to Congress opposing the Trans Pacific Partnership

Dear Senator [ or member of congress] separate letters will be sent to each one.stopsignTPP

We the undersigned are strongly opposed to the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal and urge you to oppose it in the 114th Congress and the 115th Congress next year.
We are opposed because this deal would:

  • Permit foreign corporations to sue the U.S. government in private tribunals and order unlimited sums of taxpayer funds to be handed over to these corporations (Investor-State Dispute Settlement or ISDS agreements).
  • Make it easier for corporations to ship jobs to other countries and cause pay cuts for 90% of American workers.
  • Raise medicine prices and give expanded powers to Big Pharma corporations.
  • Flood the U.S. with unsafe imported food.
  • Undermine environmental climate policies.
  • Threaten national sovereignty by making it possible to overturn national, state and local regulations.
  • Ban “Buy American” provisions that help grow jobs here.
