The Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, sounds like a friendly little cooperative endeavor, doesn't it? Or maybe a new kind of bathroom tissue? Well, it's neither of those things. It's a proposed "free trade agreement," like NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), but with 11 countries instead of three. The negotiations, held at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, brought out almost 200 union members along with allies from Occupy San Diego, La Fuerza Unida, Friends of the Earth and other groups on Monday to express concern about the possible ramifications to their jobs, their families and the American economy. Trade negotiators from the U.S. were at the Hilton all week working on the negotiations with representatives from Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. Mexico and Canada were recently added to the TPP—but have not yet participated in the talks.
