You’ve Got Mail: TPP Official Leak

Dear Anewwe,

It’s official: the Trans-Pacific Partnership is SOPA on steroids. Thanks to a leaked chapter of the secret international treaty, we now know that the TPP would grant unprecedented snooping and censorship powers to ISPs, copyright holders, and governments.

The TPP would impose SOPA-style censorship on internet users everywhere. Click here to tell your lawmakers to stop it.

The TPP — a trade agreement between 12 of the world’s most powerful nations — would encourage ISPs to censor web content, prosecute supposed copyright infringers without due process, spy on your web activity, share your private data with copyright holders, and even block your internet connection altogether.

The intellectual property provisions in the TPP — leaked by WikiLeaks last week — amount to a wish-list for Hollywood and Big Pharma: criminalizing small-scale downloading, destroying Fair Use standards, and undermining access to medicine for million of people worldwide.

We still have time to stop this corporate coup d’etat — tell your lawmakers stand against censorship and corporate protectionism.

Put simply, the TPP sacrifices our rights to serve the interests of giant companies. Lax food safety rules, unregulated fracking, overseas job shifts, rocketing drug prices, internet monopolies, slashes to public services to profit Wall Street robbers — are just some of the projected effects of the TPP.

And if the President has his way, this thing will be “fast-tracked” through Congress — which means lawmakers’ won’t get a chance to debate or modify the trade law.

Click here to tell your lawmakers to reject fast-track trade authority, and stop the TPP — before it’s too late.

Thank you,

Demand Progress Team
