TTP, TTIP + TISA: The Secret Strategy To Create A New System

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSc99Iqx60A

"... What [these agreements] are about, is enshrining an investor rights regime in the respective countries and ensuring that [multinational] corporations can run wild in their respective economies with very little regulation or impingement by government or authorities."

"This is a new power which will be handed over to U.S. corporations, to sue the governments of Europe in a parallel judicial system which is available to them alone. So people have no access to it, domestic firms have no access to it, governments have no access to it; it's just their foreign investors, in this case U.S. corporations."
