The Trans-Pacific Partnership: the treaty that outlaws democracy

Michael Kandelaars writes in US Socialist Worker (republished from Red Flag) about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the treaty that outlaws democracy. He finishes off by saying:

What is needed today is not more free trade, but a world where the resources are shared and used for the benefit of the majority of the population. A world in which the sick aren’t priced out of lifesaving medicines. A world in which those who do the work democratically control what we produce.

And yes, we have digital subscriptions […]
