Extract from “The real danger in TPP—Lise Johnson, Lisa Sachs and Jeffrey Sachs”

That ISDS would be expanded so significantly by the TPP and TTIP should cause great concern for citizens who care about America’s policies on climate change, environmental protection, food and drug safety, national security, public health, and responses to economic crises. Foreign-owned companies have challenged all of these types of measures and more under ISDS, turning to arbitrators to secure more favorable rights and remedies than they would be entitled to under domestic law.

This threat to the law and to democratic processes has no place in a 21st century trade agreement and should be removed before these agreements can be seriously considered.
