“You must be the change you wish to see in this world”

"Let us become the change we seek"

- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

“Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind”

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable"

- John Fitzgerald Kennedy  

 

  "A Truth, Love, and Freedom movement... working to change our 
political and economic systems through restoring OUR Country to The
Founding Principles, highlighted in the Bill of Rights. Regardless of  
propaganda levied against us, we are a NON-violent group, simply 
engaged in protected First Amendment Free Speech and Media. 
Freedom of Speech is NOT terrorism, as many mainstream news 
channels may imply on a continual basis.  Our UNALIENABLE 
Rights like Assembling and Bearing Arms are fueled by just existing on 
this planet. These Rights were fought for by the Sacred Blood of our 
Ancestors and the war continues to this day.  Presently, we 
are being heavily attacked in the Spiritual realm, yet we know we must 
be as gentle as a dove and as strong as a lion.  If you want to change 
something just look in the mirror and the world will start changing 
around you. We Respect and Honor Individuals who uphold their 
Oaths to the Constitution.  For the rest of you, may history forget 
you were Our Countrymen. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds 
you. The one who worships the Old World Order through false mental 
constructs by means of chaos, money and authority ought to be 
ashamed. We will NOT submit to this tyranny! Stand with us, while we 
build a commUnity that will make you proud, on the Right side of 
history!!"

We Are Change Colorado

November 17, 2013

We Are Changers around the world still have a chance to help stop the secret passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Earlier this week, Wikileaks published a 95-page page excerpt of the TPP’s most recent draft.

All TPP trade negotiations have been kept completely secret from journalists, politicians and the public, while access has been granted to more than 600 corporate lobbyists and unelected government officials involved in the drafting process.

This time around, the Trans-Pacific Partnership looks to exponentially expand its scope more so than any other previous trade agreement.

The TPP Trade Agreement currently involves 12 countries: United States, Japan, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, Canada and Mexico with a possibility of China joining in later on.

The TPP threatens internet freedom, intellectual property law and stands to create a new court for investor-state dispute settlements (ISDS).

The newly created courts would allow corporations the right to sue countries for having laws that diminish their bottom line profits and share prices. Corporations would essentially have the power to bankrupt entire nations with billion dollar lawsuits.

If this legislation is fast tracked, the TPP is in clear violation of Article 1 Section 8, the Commerce Clause of the US Constitution. Individuals representing the United States cannot sign off on foreign trade agreements without Congressional approval.

Over 130 members of the House of Representatives have joined Representative Rosa Delauro and Rep. George Miller by signing a letter to United States Trade Representative Ambassador Ron Kirk calling for more additional Congressional input and transparency in the TPP trade negotiations process.

The Delauro-Miller letter states:

“Provide us with a copy of the confidentiality agreement and an explanation as to what role USTR or other governments played in crafting it.”

The letter addresses the agreement’s increase in scope stating:

“The negotiations USTR is pursuing will create binding policies on future Congresses in numerous areas. These could include those related to labor, patent and copyright, land use, food, agriculture and product standards, natural resources, the environment, professional licensing, state-owned enterprises and government procurement policies, as well as financial, healthcare, energy, telecommunications and other service sector regulations.”

Supporters of the TPP believe this agreement will be the model for future global government agreements such as the upcoming trade agreement between the US and European Union known as the Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Area (TAFTA).

If we can begin to actively put pressure on our representatives, we can stop these this trade agreement before it’s too late.

Congress has the power to stop this from happening, but they will only act if they receive public pressure from individual citizens.

It’s important that we don’t let companies like Monsanto, JPMorgan and Halliburton fast-track this TPP agreement.

For those who are new to this sort of thing, we’ve been able to stop many trade agreements in the past. For instance, it was a citizen protest that disrupted the 1999 World Trade Organization’s negotiations in Seattle.

What You Can Do to Help

Please routinely post on the United State Trade Representative’s Facebook, politely bombard your representatives with phone calls, sign the petition, create your own demonstrations and publish your own content (videos, articles, memes, etc.) about this dangerous trade agreement.

The more awareness we can create around the TPP, the harder it will be for them to keep it secret and out of the public eye.

Success is within reach and with focused intention, we can stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
