Beacon Journal is silent on anti-democratic provision of TPP

1fasttrack

Not one single paragraph, sentence, clause or even word in this Beacon Journal editorial in support of Fast Track and the TPP about the “investor-state dispute settlement” provision that establishes unelected and unaccountable tribunals to rule on suits filed by transnational corporations that regard democratically enacted rules, laws and regulations protecting workers, consumers and the environment as “trade barriers” and thus deserving of financial compensation over “expected future profits.” Profoundly undemocratic. A Fast Track bill is being introduced soon in Congress. Contact your Congressperson and Senators Brown and Portman…and send a letter to editor to the Beacon Journal.
