Alternative Trade Mandate
Trade needs a new vision and should represent the public interest, communities, farmers, workers and the poor, and not only corporate profit interests. Communities should have the right to food sovereignty and to protect themselves from the ravages of financial deregulation, genetic corn and beef and chlorinated chicken. TPP only promotes high profits and competition. The sovereignty and priority of civil society is replaced by corporate rule through 3-judge arbitration boards. What a scandal that corporations can sue states but states cannot sue corporations!
