WikiLeaks speaks out against TPP secrecy, November 25, 2013


The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a trade deal that countries along the Pacific Rim have been negotiating in secret for several years, yet bragging that it could be the biggest trade agreement in history, addressing everything from food to medicine to intellectual property. Critics of the negotiations and the potential deal contend that the TPP will only help big corporations at the expense of the general public. Last week, whistleblowing organization WikiLeaks leaked 95 pages of documents relating to the TPP's intellectual property negotiations. RT's Meghan Lopez speaks with Kristinn Hrafnsson, spokesman for WikiLeaks, about the TPP, its negotiations and how WikiLeaks got the documents they leaked.
