Despite the Senate vote approving a measure to give President Obama fast-track authority to negotiate the secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, opposition to the deal continues to mount ahead of this month’s House vote. Critics, including a number of Democratic lawmakers, oppose the TPP, saying it will fuel inequality, kill jobs, and undermine health, environmental and financial regulations. The negotiations have been secret, and the public has never seen most of the deal’s text. Well, this morning the whistleblowing group WikiLeaks launched a campaign to change that. The group is seeking to raise $100,000 to offer what they describe as a bounty for the leaking of the unseen chapters of the TPP. We speak to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Fantastic post Lo and your timing is also beautiful!! It will be widely shared!
Thanks, Tom, I’m hoping it’s not too late for people to contact their Congressperson. I called mine today and talked with a person in the office. Sounds like she is going to vote for Fast Track and for the TPP (although not definite). She votes the Republican line and doesn’t waiver. But I put in my two cents.
