What’s the Deal with TPPA?

127 vs 84 — the motion to sign and ratify the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) was passed by Dewan Rakyat on 27 January, 2016.

I wanted to know the details of TPPA but couldn’t find any documents. Why? Turns out, it’s because the documents are secret and all TPPA governments have agreed to continue the secrecy on the negotiating texts until four years after the deal is signed.

Wow! We, the people, don’t even know what our government is agreeing to on our behalf, but that agreement will impact our lives. Am I the only one who thinks it’s twisted?

So what is TPP /TPPA about? What the following videos.
