Why is this important? The TPP will:
The TPP would allow the GMO lobby to go global -- meaning increased biotech farming acreage across the U.S., forcing unlabeled GMOs on populations of participating countries;
Food labels, country or origin labels, or genetically modified food labels, would be eliminated as ‘trade barriers’ that impede corporate profits;
All TPP member countries would be required to standardize sanitary measures, meaning the lowest food safety and environmental standards will be the standards adopted in compliance with the lowest minimum-wage laws;
The TPP would flood the U.S. with unsafe and unlabeled imported food and seafood from countries like Vietnam; we will not be able to control what we eat, or even know what is in the food we eat;
The TPP would allow foreign corporations to sue governments in offshore tribunals for unlimited cash compensation for almost any domestic environmental or other law that the corporation believes is hurting its ability to profit;
The TPP would allow liquid natural gas export permits to be automatically approved without any review or consideration, meaning there would be an explosion of fracking across the U.S., potentially reversing local fracking laws;
The TPP will replace small family farms with corporate agribusinesses meaning CAFOs will increase too polluting our local waterways with antibiotic resistance;
The TPP will destroy heirloom seed brands and biodiversity because farmers will not be able to sell non-‘standardized’ crops, access to ‘local grown’ food will end;
Big Ag has already started a ‘land grab’ to consolidate its control over both production and distribution of genetically modified crops; and
The TPP would allow Monsanto to add other crops to the line of its ‘RoundUp Ready’ products, drastically increasing the amount of RoundUp pesticides in our nations soil and pesticide runoff into our groundwater and rivers, creating environmental devastation.
Thank you for your continued support for the future of our food sovereignty.
