Trans-Pacific Partnership Talks Begin For Global Internet Censorship Plan

TPP will create international “internet police” that will have the power to censor content and remove websites

President Obama has begun a week long campaign in Asia to promote the Trans-Pacific Partnership

The TPP, sold as a “free trade agreement” has been criticized as allowing another wave of outsourcing similar to the 1994 NAFTA agreement. The TPP will also create an international “internet police” that will have the power to censor content and remove whole websites. Mega corporations will gain more power to wage war against competition and censor speech online. To demonstrate the influence these entities have, over 600 corporate advisers have helped create the TPP.

The TPP would require all countries involved to align their laws with the agreements copyright laws. The Electronic Frontier Foundation says of the TPP,

“TPP raises significant concerns about citizens’ freedom of expression, due process, innovation, the future of the Internet’s global infrastructure, and the right of sovereign nations to develop policies and laws that best meet their domestic priorities.”

Food safety will also be impacted by the TPP, as it could allow corporations like Monsanto to force genetically modified crops into TPP countries. In 2010, Obama appointed Islam Siddiqui to be the Chief Agricultural Negotiator for the United States. Siddiqui is the former Vice President for Science and Regulatory Affairs at CropLife America, a Monsanto front group. He is working with the administration on the TPP.
