Occupy DC activists disrupt secret negotiations at the Trans-Pacific Partnership meeting in Leesburg, VA, September 12, 2012. Three Occupy activists snuck into the Financial Services meeting part of the negotiations. They "mic checked" the negotiations, then were escorted out of the building by security guards and police.

This trade deal is being made behind closed doors and in secret. It is a 1% trade deal and undermines the 99%. The laws currently being negotiated in Congress will be negated by this trade deal, as international treaties like these trump domestic law. This is something that everything should be protesting, unless you're a wealthy bankster.

This deal serves the wealthy, corporate elite and the 1% and undermines the 99%. It rips apart local economies, raises prices on life-saving drugs, including Medicare and Medicaid drugs in the United States, benefits Wall Street banksters and wealthy capitalists, gives corporations the ability to trample the environment, and undermine the power of the 99%.

We reject this trade deal, and the process by which it is being negotiated. We are the 99%!
