No to the TPP

Project Date: 
Tuesday, November 12, 2013 - 7:45pm
Location: 
Camden Yards Baltimore, MD

Last night, in a coordinated action along with projection groups and light brigades in 10 other cities, Luminous Intervention dropped by Camden Yards to show Baltimore's support to the growing anti-TPP movement. We also made the quick TPP 101 Primer video (above).

If you haven’t heard of the TPP or Trans-Pacific Partnership, it’s no coincidence, it’s by design. The TPP has been called NAFTA on steroids, a “corporate coup,” and concerned citizens from across the nation are calling on congress to Flush It. The TPP, the largest ever of it’s kind, is a  race to the bottom international agreement on domestic and international policies of food safety, internet freedom, medicine costs, financial regulation, and the environment.

Masked as a trade deal, the agreement has been negotiated under supervision of 600 unelected corporate “trade advisors” while the text has been hidden from members of congress, the press, and the public. By contrast, the public could review trade agreements online during the Bush administration. What has been learned about the TPP has come through leaked texts, alarming everyone from members of congress worried about sovereign powers being negotiated away to public health officials, labor representatives, environmental groups, and advocates of consumer issues.
