THE TIME TO UNITE AND CHANGE OUR FUTURE IS NOW
A new devious and unscrupulous deal called the
Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), is cunningly written to protect investors from
government regulation, even if that regulation is passed in the public interest.
Leaked versions suggest the TPP would undermine protections for air and water
safety and reintroduce measures from the US Internet freedom attack as well as
steamrolling efforts to produce generic affordable medicines. Worse still,
lawmakers who fail to conform to the TPP’s rules face sanctions in an
international tribunal -- a place where corporations can sue us for deals
previous governments signed in secret!
Negotiators say this is just a trade agreement, written to facilitate
investment and profit for all. But the leaked draft imposes so many limits on
citizen protections, it's clear this "trade" agreement is skewed
to put corporate profit above people's needs -- that's not surprising since
it's been drafted in secret with almost 600 corporate lobbyists.
But there is hope: Australia is bucking against the international tribunal
system, and New Zealand is objecting to the takeover of its medicine-pricing
protections that keep drugs affordable. Massive public opposition, casting
doubt over each country's ability to sell TPP at home, could derail the talks
for good. Sign the petition now, and forward widely -- the delegates and
lobbyists are watching the wave of opposition grow in real time:

US Senator, Elizabeth Warren in a recent speech said: “Corporations are not
people. People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick, they
cry, they dance. They live, they love, and they die. And that matters, because
we don't run this country for corporations, we run it for people." Let’s
reach one million to stop the corporate takeover of our governments.
The UBUNTU Party and the UBUNTU Liberation Movement's sentiment is the same. Let us regain our true humanity and the rights that are inalienable to humans - not corporations. Only united communities that work for the benefit of all will prosper in the near future. Let us embrace the beautiful principles of UBUNTU Contributionism and unite to stop the growing tyranny against humanity by corporations and corrupt governments.
