Right now, President Obama is meeting with key leaders in Asia to finalize the ‘Trans Pacific Partnership’ (TPP) in complete secrecy. Leaked documents show that this secretive plan will censor the Internet and strip away our rights. 

We're going to use a high powered spotlight to project a StopTheSecrecy message on key buildings in Washington D.C. to ensure Obama, the media, and everyone else knows TPP secrecy must be stopped. To spread the word, all it takes is a few lines of code. Please add this petition code to your personal blog or your company's website and our servers will handle the rest. Every time somebody signs the petition, our projections will get bigger and more powerful. Please help us get the word out today.

President Obama and other leaders are meeting in Asia right now to finalize the Trans-Pacific Partnership - a deal that threatens to censor your use of the Internet, kill jobs, undermine environmental protections and remove your democratic rights.

This is urgent: They’re trying to nail down this deal right now under cover of extreme secrecy, with citizens and public interest groups entirely excluded from the talks. Meanwhile, at home an army of lobbyists are trying to ram through a fast track law that would force the TPP through the U.S. Congress without a public debate.

We’re doing our best to stop them, but we need your help. Can we count on your support to tell decision-makers to reject the TPP’s job-killing Internet censorship plan?

They’re pulling out all the stops to finalize this deal in secret talks - but citizens are speaking out and fighting back. Today, we are joining the largest-ever international campaign against the excessive secrecy surrounding the TPP. We’re calling for Obama to end the secrecy by immediately releasing the full text of the TPP so that it can be debated democratically by the public.

We’ll be using a high-powered spotlight to beam a hard-hitting Stop the Secrecy message on key buildings in Washington, D.C. This signal will get larger and larger as more people join our campaign at https://StopTheSecrecy.net

The more who support us the more powerful our voice will be. That’s why we’re urging you to join hundreds of thousands speaking out at https://StopTheSecrecy.net

The stakes could not be higher. Please, join us and speak out now before it’s too late.
