Secret Free Trade Agreement That Should Have All Of Us Very Worried #TPPA #ows #oo

The Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) is a free trade agreement in the works between New Zealand and the US, Brunei, Australia, Chile, Singapore, Malaysia and Peru.

The details of the proposed agreement are being kept secret from the general population of all nations involved. The very notion, that our governments are not telling us what we should have a right to know should scare every single one of us.

This, as we all know has been going on since government has existed. There is no such thing as full disclosure when it comes to the governments we have had so far. This is a huge problem, and one that needs to end.

Here’s what we do know about TPPA:
