DON'T LET HIM! The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a hush-hush trade pact that threatens millions of Internet users’ rights to connect and communicate. Until recently the agreement had been shrouded in secrecy. But now that WikiLeaks has released some of the text,1 we know that the TPP would let corporations monitor our online activities, cut off our Internet access, delete content and impose fines. The TPP is that bad. And it’s on a fast track to getting U.S. approval — without any public review or input.2 This is why the Free Press Action Fund has joined with RootsAction to stop the TPP. Join Our Campaign: Tell Congress and the White House to Reject the TPP. Former U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk has admitted that if the public knew about the TPP, there’s no way it would pass. The TPP caters to corporate interests that have little regard for our digital rights. Consider the section on intellectual property, which allows the kinds of online speech restrictions that many of you protested when they appeared in the Stop Online Piracy Act. We Stopped SOPA. Let’s Stop the TPP. SIGN: ROOTSACTION
