Open The TPP campaign turns heads at negotiations

Posted by OpenMedia on Mon, 09/10/2012 - 15:15

Over the past week, we've been asking you to submit your comments, images and perspectives of the Trans-Pacific Partnership that you wanted to put in front of TPP negotiators. Yesterday morning, our OpenTheTPP.net coalition partners were on the ground in Leesburg, Virginia to share and project your feedback during a round of public consultation. 

Your messages were provoking, smart and unified by a common opinion that we deserve to know more about the secrecy surrounding the TPP. With your help and support of the OpenTheTPP.net campaign we've taken the first steps in pushing towards transparency and truth, so a sincere thanks to everyone who sent their messages in through Facebook, Twitter, e-mail and our campaign site. If you haven't already, feel free to share your thoughts in a comment below or at http://OpenTheTPP.net.

We'll be continuing to gather your comments and report back in more detail soon. Until then, we encourage you to view our stream of comments that continue to pour in.
