The TPP deal will hurt Australians

Check out the real story behind the TPP deal.

Just what is Tony Abbott negotiating behind our backs? This short video explains a major aspect of the TPP deal and why it’s a bad deal for us

Top secret negotiations for the massive Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement are wrapping up in New York City today. World leaders claim they made major progress — and they are just months away from passing this devastating deal.

The TPP will have massive implications for all of us — handing corporations new powers to sue governments for passing laws and regulations that protect workers and the environment.

With talks rapidly nearing completion, it’s more important than ever to understand the problems with this dangerous deal. We’ve teamed up with a group of organizations, including GetUp!, to make a video that explains one of the most serious issues with the TPP — investor state dispute settlement (ISDS), allowing big corporations to sue governments for billions.

(Europa krijgt de TTIP opgedrongen. Voor Australië is al wat langer de vergelijkbare TPP in de maak. Daarover gaat de video.)

Sum of Us is a world-wide movement focused on creating a better global economy. We want governments to answer to people, not corporations. Our focus is on ethical consumerism, from the sourcing of products to the rights of workers to fair treatment. We’re building a world that puts the needs of people and the environment above short-sighted greed for the good of all of us and our world.

We’re using people power, people like you, to expose the one weakness of the corporations ruining our planet: they need us to buy their products. We’ve got the advantage. We are SumofUs.org and we’re not going to take this anymore.
