The Trans-Pacific Partnership, frequently referred to as “TPP”, is a trade agreement initiated in 2005 and begin negotiated between the U.S. and 11 other countries. The negotiations have mostly been secret, are a threat to labor rights, the environment, could weaken or limit food safety standards, as well as consumer-right-to-know regulations and threaten internet freedom.
