NAFTA On Steroids
An interview in the video below with Popular Resistance director Kevin Zeese, about the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) and the anti-TPP demonstration seen here. (Uploaded September 29, 2013.)
"Whatever issue you're concerned about," says Mr. Zeese, "whether it's internet freedom, workers' rights, wages, the environment, health care, safety - consumer safety, all these issues will be adversely affected by the TPP. It will become a corporate dominated economy - global economy - it's really a global corporate coup. We should call it rigged trade - it's not free trade, it's rigged trade. And we should stop letting that propaganda term of free trade out there. It's rigged trade."
