Forum on the Trans-Pacific Partnership

Date: Thursday, January 30, 2014
Time: 7:30 PM
Presented by: New Jersey Chapter
Leader: Nicole Dallara - nicole.dallara@sierraclub.org
Location: Jersey City City Hall, 280 Grove Street, Jersey City, NJ

Secrets, secrets are no fun…unless you are one of the countries and corporations involved in the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is an expansive trade pact being negotiated between countries in the Pacific Rim, including Australia, Japan, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, Canada, Mexico, and the U.S.

Negotiations are taking place in almost complete SECRECY. Access to the content of the pact is limited to a select few government officials, a handful of non-corporate advisers, and more than 600 business executives. No draft texts have been publicly released, which means there has been no meaningful opportunity for public comment or debate.

We are going to change that by shedding the light on the dark side of this trade pact!

Join the NJ Sierra Club at Food & Water Watch’s public forum in Jersey City on Thursday January 30th to learn about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and how it can be stopped! If completed, this secret trade deal would expedite fracking in our region and around the country, destroy local jobs, strip away food safety and environmental regulations, and empower corporations while weakening democracy.

To RSVP please email Nicole at nicole.dallara@sierraclub.org. Also email Nicole if you have any questions or concerns.
