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.

Obama’s secret trade deals greatly favors big banks. Brown says, “It looks to me the banking system is in control. That’s where all the big money comes from, and that’s where the two big parties got their money. It’s been this way ever since Rockefeller and Morgan back then in 1900—the Democrats and the Republicans. Brown goes on to say, “The goal here is “they” want to own everything and rent it back to us. So, law is no longer a way to protect the people. Law is now to protect the corporations and serve the corporations.”

Activists Hang Four Anti-#TPP Banners on U.S. Trade Building in D.C.

Bill Hughes on Sep 23, 2013

On September 23rd, Social Justice activists hung four huge anti-Trans-Pacific Partnership, (TPP), banners on the U.S. Office of Trade Representative building in Washington, D.C. None of the activists were arrested, although one, Tighe Barry, was detained briefly during the demonstration, and then released.

According to “Resist the Trans-Pacific Partnership”, unless “Fast Track” is defeated, a finalized trade deal will more than likely “further entrench corporate power in every area of our lives [including the Internet]…[especially] with more than 600 corporate advisors on board — [as negotiators] including [representatives from] Monsanto, Halliburton, Walmart and Chevron.”

Speaking on camera are Kevin Zeese, Dr. Margaret Flowers, Natalie Yoon and Tighe Barry. To learn more about this important issue, go to: “Resist the TPP — Stop Fast Track,” at: http://www.facebook.com/events/426996234075963/

Prospects are looking bleak for the US army whistleblower Bradley Manning. A military judge has refused to drop the charge against him of ‘aiding the enemy’. That means the army private – who turned over thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks – could spend the rest of his life behind bars with no chance of parole.

The 16th round of negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) began this week in Singapore. That trade deal has the potential to become the biggest regional free-trade agreement in history, both because of the size of the economies participating in the negotiations and because it holds open the possibility for other countries to quietly “dock in” to the existing agreement at some point in the future.
