Call to Action AGAINST the TPP
Tuesday December 3, 2013 we are asking the concerned and interested public to gather at 4th St near Midtown Circle around 3:30pm to complete sign-making. We’ll be demonstrating from 4:00-5:30pm. We will be distributing information about the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement and why this new trade deal is not a good deal for the US.
It is no surprise that few have heard of the TPP as the work of the US Trade Department on the agreement has been in secret. Those whom have been granted the ability to review portions of content can not bring a camera, or even notepad in when viewing.

Oil extraction to take place in proposed Amazon tribe reserve
Peru’s state agency promoting oil and gas operations has announced that by the end of this month oil will be produced from new deposits in a remote part of the Peruvian Amazon near the border with Ecuador.
Also from the article:
'We will not comment on specific dates but we have publically stated that commercial production is set to commence in 2013,' Nicolas de Blanpre, Perenco's Head of Communications, told The Guardian.
However, although Perupetro’s statement doesn’t acknowledge it, Lot 67 is right in the middle of a proposed reserve for indigenous peoples living in what Peruvian laws calls ‘voluntary isolation’ (IPVI) and who could be decimated by contact with oil workers or other outsiders.
The reserve was proposed 10 years ago before the oil deposits were declared commercially-viable in 2006, but it still hasn’t been created. In July this year the Vice-Ministry of Inter-Culturality – the government institution responsible for indigenous peoples – revealed its support for the proposed reserve, and a Vice-Ministry spokesperson recently told a hearing at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights that the proposal would be discussed on 5 December by a special cross-sector government commission focusing on IPVI.
A Peruvian law from 2006 states that ‘indigenous reserves’ for IPVI are ‘intangible’, prohibiting ‘any activity different to the uses and ancestral customs of its indigenous inhabitants’ and prohibiting the granting of 'rights involving the exploitation of natural resources, except those for subsistence purposes of the peoples living there and those that allow exploitation to take place in a way that doesn't affect the indigenous peoples in isolation or initial contact.'
However, the law also contains a loophole stating that exploitation in the reserves can go ahead if considered in the ‘public necessity' – despite the fact that this loophole appears to contravene international law binding on Peru.
