350 Responds to Introduction of TPP Fast-Track Legislation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 16, 2015
Contact: Karthik Ganapathy, (347) 881-3784

In response to introduction of legislation fast-tracking approval of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement, 350.org Executive Director May Boeve issued the following response:

“This bill is a climate disaster, and amounts to nothing more than a taxpayer-funded handout to corporations. We’ve seen leaked text showing that TPP would allow fossil fuel companies like Exxon to sue any member country that dares to act on climate, and hold up any law or regulation that hurts their bottom line. That’s an irresponsible giveaway that lets Big Oil handcuff our political systems even more, and would be a giant step backwards in the fight against climate change. Throw in TPP’s total disregard for workers’ rights, health, and safety, and this one’s a no-brainer — it’s a corporate power giveaway that our movement will rise up to stop.”
