[PDI] Obama Trade Deal Worse Than NAFTA

Is this for real? In an election year, no less? I really hope this is
bullshit. On every level.

Dear Catherine,

As a candidate, Obama promised to renegotiate NAFTA, the trade deal that
has undermined workers and the environment.

As president, Obama has pushed through corporate trade agreements that
build on the NAFTA model -- including with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.

*Stop him before he does

Now leaks of negotiations with eight Pacific countries reveal Obama's
intention to out-NAFTA NAFTA.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal has been negotiated in secret
(except for 600 corporate advisors). The TPP would:

- reward outsourcing of jobs to lower-wage countries;
- give foreign corporations immunity from U.S. laws;
- allow foreign corporations to challenge U.S. laws in foreign (secret)
tribunals; and
- wipe out national protections for workers or the environment.

U.S. negotiators are pushing these worse-than-NAFTA measures on the Pacific

*Take a minute to tell President Obama (and Congress) that we won't stand
for it. *<>

AND please forward this email widely to like-minded friends.
