A new treaty being negotiated in secret between the US and the EU has been specifically engineered to give companies what they want the dismantling of all social, consumer and environmental protection, and compensation for any infringement of their assumed rights.

Yes, I've been banging on about this 'agreement' for some time to anyone who'll listen, which is not many.

It's not news, more's the pity.

That's part of the trouble. They 'think' they are 'persons' but of course want the benefits of personhood and none of the responsibilities. This idea of corporations as persons must go.

I'm now seriously thinking of writing to Beeb News and ITN to ask why the heck this kind o'thing never appears on the bloody news.

I mean, Nelson Mandela was, and is, important and yes he was a Great Bloke but they wittered on about him for AN HOUR on News at 10 the other day and it was the same day as the Autumn Statement which got no coverage at all.

Write to your MPs and MEPs about it!

If they don't get any complaints they will think that we don't care.

And I''m not apologising for shouting.

We're not alone. There's also the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Naomi Klein was talking this afternoon about how these agreements would make global warming worse. Tyndall Radical Emissions Reduction Conference.

Expect more stuff like this.

Right now, Calgary-based Infinito Gold is suing the Costa Rican government for over $1 billion because Costa Rica rejected Infinitos plan to build an open-pit gold mine in a pristine tropical forest.


In fact, this "treaty" (i.e., an agreement between states, not nations) is probably the biggest reason why some of the pharming companies 'pulled out' of Europe recently. It was always a temporary hiatus until they worked their magic on politicians. Clever.
