Nearly 600 corporations, including Walmart and General Electric Oil & Gas, serve as U.S. trade advisers and are actively involved in shaping the text of a new trade agreement while the public is shut out of the processes.
An extreme provision could be added known as “investor state dispute settlement” which means that new safeguards which could prevent, for example, big oil companies from dumping waste into our ocean could be challenged by corporate polluters in private trade meetings.
This opens the door for corporations to challenge nearly any environmental protection or conservation law that protects our health.
