Today Trade ministers from 12 countries negotiating the gigantic 'Trans Pacific Partnership' have reached agreement on a trade deal which sets the economic rules for 40% of the world economy and threatens global sustainability. The TPP favours safeguards for corporate investments over safeguards for nature.

If you are concerned about climate change and human rights, now is the time to make your voice heard about this destructive deal!
