Stop the Secrecy

against fast tracking the secretive TPP

  Stop the Secrecy before it's too late

The TPP threatens to censor your Internet1, kill jobs, undermine environmental safeguards, and remove your democratic rights2.

Add your voice to the largest anti-secrecy campaign in history to send TPP decision-makers a clear message before it's too late.

*UPDATE: Together we grabbed the attention of decision-makers by projecting a Stop The Secrecy petition number on key buildings in Washington D.C. Now we need you to amplify our action by making it go viral online. Congress Member Ron Wyden, who leads U.S. trade legislation, has just joined with us to stand against TPP Secrecy!  We haven't won yet so after you sign the petition please share the projection image below with everyone you know.

The TPP is huge: It covers 40% of the global economy and will overwrite national laws affecting people around the world.3 
 

The worst of the TPP threatens everything we care about: democracy, jobs, health, the environment, and the Internet.  That's why industry lobbyists are forcing decision-makers to meet under extreme secrecy and pushing 'Fast Track' laws to cement the plan into place. 

This is no way to make decisions in the 21st century. Every voice added now will make the Stop The Secrecy petition makes our call louder and stronger. 

Please add your voice to help us build one of the largest online campaigns the world has ever seen.

Once the TPP is finalized there will be pressure to harmonize and extend its provisions to TTIP -- meaning the E.U. There are also reports of many others countries being added to the TPP once it is finalized.
