Why were Apple, Facebook, Google Missing From Tech Lineup Against TPP
They were at a confidential Spy Summit chilling with their international spy homies in the UK. This folks is the reality of the internet. It’s reached the stage where we can adapt to the terms served to us on a political platter with a side of fresh fuck you salad or find alternative means that would leave a better taste in your mouth. I'd rather sway towards alternatives, better is better than bitter.
Ok to the point! What is TPP? Truth Digg can explain it because I can't be bothered.
The TPP would create an environment hostile to journalists and whistleblowers, said policy directors for the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Fight for the Future, co-authors of the letter. “TPP’s trade secrets provisions could make it a crime for people to reveal corporate wrongdoing ‘through a computer system’,” says the letter. “The language is dangerously vague, and enables signatory countries to enact rules that would ban reporting on timely, critical issues affecting the public.”
The way I read it is if there's a corporation dumping toxins on a beach near me and I videoed that shit I couldn't really make it public on youtube, facebook or even liveleak legally. Corporation = 1, Environmentalist = None
