From the WikiLeaks website:

The TPP Investment Chapter, published today, is dated 20 January 2015. The document is classified and supposed to be kept secret for four years after the entry into force of the TPP agreement or, if no agreement is reached, for four years from the close of the negotiations.

Julian Assange, WikiLeaks editor said,

The TPP has developed in secret an unaccountable supranational court for multinationals to sue states. This system is a challenge to parliamentary and judicial sovereignty. Similar tribunals have already been shown to chill the adoption of sane environmental protection, public health and public transport policies.

  1. Reblogged this on Spirit In Action and commented:
    Thank you Anita! I hope everyone will share this everywhere. The more people see what is being done behind closed doors to erase our rights, the faster it will be stopped. When governments work for corporations-that’s called Fascism. The same political set up as Hitler and Mussolini promoted and used. I don’t think most Americans are okay with that.
