In this episode of Days of Revolt, host Chris Hedges and organizer Kevin Zeese break down the terms of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The two deconstruct how the TPP and other associated trade deals like TiSA and TTIP, if approved, will lead to the irreversible privatization of public services, the dismantling of people’s judiciary rights, and the further corporatization of pharmaceuticals, labor, and natural resources. Zeese highlights the importance of direct action in combating these injustices, specifically detailing upcoming demonstrations he has organized with PopularResistance.
