I support Food & Water Watch simply because I have a family and want them to be healthy, happy and do not want anyone to take advantage of them.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership: Fast Tracking Fracking



Currently, a secretive multinational agreement, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), is being negotiated by 12 countries, including the United States, Canada, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Japan and Brunei. Although the TPP is being sold as just another free trade agreement, only five of its 29 chapters are directly related to trade. In reality, the TPP would be a permanent power grab by corporations and their financers, and, among its many ramifications, the agreement could fast track fracking for shale gas in the United States by expediting unrestricted liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports.
