The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a massive new trade agreement between 12 countries that changes the rules of global trade and investment. The agreement tilts the playing field even more toward big multinational corporations and away from civil society, communities, and workers.

It allows corporations to demand compensation for their bad investments if new policy is implemented in the public interest, such as a tar sands oil pipeline rejection.
And it directly threatens our climate by undermining local efforts to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

The agreement has garnered unprecedented opposition from grassroots social movements in all TPP countries and across movements in the US. Immigrant rights groups, LGBTQ activists, labor unions, affordable health care advocates, free internet defenders, and frontline communities fighting fossil fuel projects all have taken a strong stand against the agreement.
