International Supporters speak

Initially the TPP Watch site was predominantly aimed at people living in New Zealand. As the campaign has grown, people from other countries have chosen TPP Watch as an outlet for their opposition to the TPP.  These are some of the International supporters so far:

Leah Zajdman. (Canada) We can’t let this happen!

Dale Daines. (Australia)

Jen (Canada). I don’t care if this doesn’t do anything. What is this? Your role is not to control people. Your role is to run a country. Don’t ever try to abuse your powers.

Nicholas Williams. (Australia)

Guillermo Alvarez. (Guatemala)

Igor. (Serbia)

Anthony Correy. (United States). I was under the impression that US policy was to not enter into illegal cartel agreements.

Rane Aguiar. (Brazil)

Kyle Storer. (UK). The governments of the world are clearly showing just how corrupt and money hungry they are with SOPA, PIPA, ACTA and TPP. None of these acts can be allowed to pass. It will only lead to control and freedom being stripped from the public.

Russel Advincula. (Canada)

Excelsis A. (Australia)

Jordyn Parker. (Canada). This is literally the sixth or seventh bill I’ve seen in the past TWO MONTHS dealing with Internet censorship and ridiculous, over-the-top “copyright protection”. It’s getting f**king ridiculous and seriously pissing me and millions of others off, who do not want these bills or anything like them to be put into effect, ever. I am not excusing my language because that’s how upset I am about this entire issue. Yes, copyright infringement is an issue, but this is NOT AT ALL the way to go about trying to fix it.

Lori. (Canada)

The Pootis Man.

Ben Lister.

Oliver. (USA)

Elizabeth. (USA). Any government who agrees to this is the worst kind of traitor. Anyone who agrees to this is a murderer. The secrecy about this thing is the worst part. It can’t happen.

Cameron Kelly, Hardwater. (Netherlands) I’m a recording artist; it is in my name that these travesties of legislation are being forced through. I speak for all of us when I say “NO”.

Elise Holmes. (Netherlands)

Kate. (Canada). I’m getting really tired of these undemocratic corporate dictatorships trying to control the flow of information under the flimsy guise of “copyright.”I also hope the masterminds of SOPA, PIPA, ACTA, and TPP lose their shirts over this.

Tom Larson. (Canada). I am thoroughly vexed by these repeated efforts to compromise the integrity of the internet.

Nix. (Malaysia)

Owen Mooney. (UK). Are you f***ing serious, USA parliament? Really? You can’t just not try and break down basic civil rights for the sake of your goddamned copyright and agendas?

Kathleen Brenowitz. (United States)

Cristina. (Germany)

Darby. (Canada)

Tess Clements-Grimshaw. (Australia)

Frederik Seidelin. (Denmark). Just stop, please…

Amanda Milette. (Canada).

Colleen van Wijngaarden. (Netherlands). I don’t even have words for TPPA but these…

Pablo Bustamante. (Chile). I’m really angry that the government of my country, Chile, is participating in such a toxic and damaging agreement. We have to stop this now that we can. If SOPA taught us anything, is that working together really makes a difference.

Gillian Martin. (Canada).

Bob. (Canada)

Alicia Butteriss. (United States).

Emma. (Netherlands).

Patrick Collins. (UK).

Rebecca Ritter. (United States).

Sarah. (United States).

John Meister. (Canada). Lets work together to create a free and fair flow of information to all of our world.

Sheila Menon. (UK).

Sam McBride. (Australia). Looking at the wording of this bill, corporate profits obviously take precedence over free speech/the generation of ideas/sharing of valuable information for the genuine advancement of others. This type of legislation disgust me.

Tiago. (Brazil). Stop trying to censor the only place we can actually be free

Kata. (Finland).

Steven Gill. (Australia). Why are none of the news providers in Australia providing this information to the general public?

W. A. Wolf. (Malaysia). The worst part of this is the secrecy. Or perhaps the worst part is how much trouble anyone would get into even just opposing this act in some of these countries. I hope it gets abolished like there’s no tomorrow.

Marilia Ribeiro. (Brazil).

Lenora Pentecost. (United States).

Fer. (Mexico). Alright. I’m not quite sure if the goverment is hearing this. If so, let me tell you, what you’re doing here isn’t good. Clearly, it would rise protests around the world, but yet, you people can’t just make it all secret. Because you just failed again. If you do this, those days of protests and fights from long ago before the 21th century will be reborn. Do you wish that suffering to happen again? Try with the current public treats, like OPEN perhaps?

Kristen. (Singapore).

Arun Bhatia. (India). Even though I am not in any of the countries which are negotiating the TPP, I feel it is just a mater of time before US will start peddling it elsewhere as well. The debacle of SOPA and PIPA are perfect examples that the US policy makers have gone bonkers, and are not in touch with reality.

Parth. (Canada).

Mel Ng. (Hong Kong).

Justin. (Canada). The Trans Pacific Partnership is just one of the many threats to the internet as we know it. It’s clear that the government and big corporations will not stop until you have complete control of the internet. However, the average user, like myself, will not stop defending our rights to use the internet as we see fit.

John Fontanes. (United States).

Shaylin Ambrose. (United States).

Joshua Renfrey. (Australia). TPP’s IP provisions are a blatant attack on culture and innovation.

Laurence de Bruxelles. (UK)

Carlos Alén. (Spain). Negotiation of agreements behind closed doors is NOT democracy.

Gacs Katalin. (Hungary).

Alex Anusca. (UK).

Reuben Thomas. (UK). When will you stop attacking our internets?

redsupoler. (Germany).

Philipi Nicolas, Universo Verde NGO. (Brazil). The TPP contain a chapter on Intellectual Property (copyright, trademarks, patents and perhaps geographical indications) that will have a broad impact on citizens’ rights, the future of the Internet’s global infrastructure, and innovation across the world. WE DISAGREE!

As a citizen who will be severely affected by TPPA, I am shocked that this legislation has been drafted without public access to the text or any respect for the democratic process. I remind you that it is your job and your duty to understand precisely the effects that legislation will have on the people, and to act in the people’s interest. TPPA is finally coming to the people’s attention, and we are collectively outraged. The internet has grown to be the most important platform for information sharing and granting power to the people in the history of mankind. TPPA will fundamentally destroy the openness and ingenuity of the Internet, lacks democratic credibility, and poses a serious threat to free speech that wrongly requires ISPs to surveil and police their users. I urge you to withhold consent on this agreement, seek to draft better legislation with more respect for the rights of the person, and to stand up for democracy and the fundamental rights of every human across the world.

Lucas A. (Brazil). Stop Censorship

Brendan Swift. (Ireland). Expect us, corrupt government and multinationals! We won’t stand for your treaties and laws that seek to further your own selfish interests but cast aside our essential freedoms!

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.

Sasha Knowles. (United States). The internet has become an everyday part of most people’s lives. Trying to tamper with it and control it will always fail. It is the one thing that is truly run by the People, and the People will not let that last freedom be taken from them. We are not animals. We are not pets. We are not meant to be contained and controlled. Each attempt has come up a failure, and this is how it should be. Don’t let fear and power control you. It will, eventually, destroy you if you let it.

Murray Soko. (Canada). Human rights is a house of cards. The multitude of laws being rushed into place of late, in the name of copyright and trade reform, pose a clear and present danger to the freedoms we hold dear, and set a dangerous precedent for further erosion of these rights. TPP must not be ratified.

Jorma. (Finland)

Ari Tikka. (Finland). This treaty allow governments to break human rights. It is only a matter of time when that will be misused. I mean in the “democratic” western civilizations.

Sebastian Wallin. (Sweden)

Aleksandar Kospenda. (Iceland). Stop pushing these “trade” bills around the would. In a bigger picture you can clearly see that this will cause problems in the future.

Martin. (Slovakia).

Logan Cobb. As a consumer and constituent, I am very concerned about the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement currently being negotiated by the Office of the United States Trade Representative. Previous free trade agreements have exported controversial aspects of U.S. copyright law, without the balancing exceptions and limitations in U.S. copyright law that enable freedom of expression and have allowed innovation to flourish. Reports indicate that the USTR tabled an intellectual property chapter that follows this approach at the most recent round of negotiations. I am concerned that this will lock-in controversial aspects of US law, restricting Congress’ ability to craft laws that meet U.S. domestic priorities, and eliminate potential export markets for innovative U.S. consumer electronics and technology companies. I am disturbed to discover that this agreement, which could have such wide-ranging effects on American citizens and the dynamic technology sector, is being conducted entirely behind closed doors in an opaque and profoundly undemocratic process. U.S. copyright law includes a carefully crafted balance of public and private rights that encourages creation, while providing incentives for innovation, and access for education, libraries and other socially beneficial purposes. Balanced policy making that serves the needs of all stakeholders in the information economy requires transparency. I urge you to bring transparency to this agreement and ensure that the TPP text reflects the interests of all U.S. industries and citizens. I ask you please to: * Call for a congressional hearing on the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, so that Congress can hear from all affected stakeholders and provide meaningful input into the content. * Call for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to release the text of the agreement and solicit public comments.

William Strom. (United States). We demand transparency.

Chris Downs. (UK). The very fact that this is being set up and signed behind closed doors AND being kept secret for four years after that, speaks volumes.

Stephen Woodard.  (UK) I for one oppose the TPP legislation on grounds of censorship. As Hollywood loses every copyright battle and attempt to kill off competition in order to avoid updating their tired business model, they just bounce back and try again. Let this opposition be another reminder to them to leave the internet alone and step up their game in developing and adapting to the information age.

Jacob. (United States)

Brian Warner. (United States). From what I understand so far, TPP would make a massive impact on ordinary citizens and small business in all the nations forced to enter this agreement, and inflict harm on various industries. Another direct concern are its possible effects on intellectual property and internet privacy, which may obtain an even worse influence than what ACTA has in store. The incident with SOPA was an alarming wake up call, but it appears we’ve only seen a taste of what the U.S. government has planned.

(Can somebody please tell me which democratic country does not crawl under debt?) This signature is my contribution to the tentative to stop such actions, and let the system change to a, hopefully, better one.

Krzysztof Dobosz. (Poland). STOP censorship!

Danny Burgoyne. (Canada). By obliging nations to treat temporary reproductions of copyrighted works as copyright infringement, this act would make the running of a copyrighted program a criminal offense since a program is copied to RAM before execution.  We need to dispose of lawmakers who do not understand the ramifications of the legislation they propose.

Jan Marti, Marti IT Services. (Switzerland). 1. It’s undemocratic because the negotiations are secret. 2. It violates the principle of proportionality.

It has patterned the ripping imprint on the pages of history since the beginning of time. And the people of this dimension will not take lightly being threatened, for we are The Anonymus.

This is a FREE country with a government for the people. People should not fear their government, a government should fear it’s people. So when the government takes your freedom… you take down the government.

Allie Bertholm. (Canada). Although I am from Canada, and this doesn’t affect us directly, our internet is tightly interwoven with the USA’s. If someone could get jail time for something on one of their own websites, what’s to say that they wouldn’t come across the borders to prosecute us for doing the same thing? That is assuming that Canada doesn’t sign on, too.

George Craig Jardine. (United Kingdom). Stop bombarding the populous with act after act. We did not want the first and we will not want the last. You are trying to force something through multiple times in different names until we miss it.

Jari. (Finland).

Mats Leo Sønsterud. (Norway).

Uwe Geller. (Germany). I believe this is not going to be read. If it is, it’s probably going to be by a person without the power to change the final decision more than I do. I write this, as an appeal to anyone who is willing to read. Most nations negotiating this treaty right now are a democracy. A state, where freedom and well being of the most people is valued. I ask you, any of you: Why are laws like the TTP kept secret from the general public? Why are the people with power forced to be silent by corporations, and bribed to give laws like these their voice? Why does the individual not worth anything but it’s consumption anymore? Why is the wide public restricted, and put under surveillance with these laws?
I have no answers. No-one does, as there are no valid excuses for these things. I hope that this message is spread far and wide, and that the leaders of our world finally come to open their eyes.
Thank you for reading.

David Naunkovic. (Austria). I was reading up on the ACTA policy – and researched more and got here.

Simon Iversen. (Sweden). I understand that stoping piracy is *one* of the goals with these these re-ocurring attempts to outlaw filesharing. But it is important to understand that any one law can affect more than any one goal, and it is my honest opinion that passing a law such as the SOPA, the PIPA, the TPP and the ACTA propositions would, quite frankly, be like shooting yourself in the foot, with a nuke… Why? Because these propositions, as has been pointed out by some of the most notable internet engineers would have effects beyond the purpose of these laws (unless there’s a hidden agenda?). These engineers know what they are talking about, and there is a reason for why so many hold them is such high regards – they have invested  lifetime into their area. So I implore you – Please reconsider!

S.M. De Kuyper. (Netherlands). The process of secrecy is to remove all checks and balances in negotiating trade agreements and removes decisively the rule of International Humanitarian Laws.  Such as checks against the selling of seeds that are genocidal in use, checks against the building of nuclear reactors when the population affected by them refuses their use.  Cows for feed infected with Mad-Cow disease can, under these laws, be sold as proper food.  And have been by the US international corporations since 2006-7.  That is when the US labelling laws were simply ignored under President Bush 11.  Spaniards were in the streets protesting the US pressure for the Spanish government to buy US beef citing proofs that Mad-Cow disease was prevalent in US slaughter houses.

Matt Long. (United Kingdom). Copyright is restrictive enough as it is, with copyrights lasting excessive amounts of time (denying the free exchange of knowledge and hindering innovation). copyright terms should be reduced with extensions granted only in exceptional circumstances, abolish or reduce measrues such as drm, censorship etc.

Brianna Algrabeli. (United States). Shocked, horrified, and mad as hell!!  Evil will always lash out strongest as it senses its own imminent demise.  It is our duty to stay strong and fight for the right of humans for generations to come to live a natural, self-determined life.  Every generation has had its war.  This is ours.  To arms!!

No way! COME ON!!!—I would personaly like to know the name of every elected official who is supporting this crap. We, American people, do not want the NWO, do not want more corporate control and are sick and tired of being lied to about every issue.  SO—NO TPP!!! We have a fake president, fake wars, fake FRN’s,a private banking system that is destroying our economy on purpose, fake elections,and a main-stream media that only knows how to report on celebrity fashion, and we know all this now so don’t even bother to deny any of it.The truth is coming out and the truth will set us all free.  Bohemian Grove, Bilderberg, rich people who have no souls,or humanity, we know who you are and what you are doing and we are sick of it. May God have mercy on you because the rest of us do not have much sympathy left for you. NO TPP!!

Andi. (Australia). Any agreement that gives corporations precedence over a sovereign country’s laws has little to do with free and fair trade and a lot to do with increased corporate greed and reduced living standards.

Cindy O’Connor. (Australia)

Erica Hedberg. (Australia). Stop this folly before it’s too late!

Andrea Mallett. (Australia). The rates of allergies and asthma in children in America are increasing in huge numbers along with the increase in foods containing GM products in their diets. Is this coincidence or not??? If not, why are these huge companies like Monsanto not spending the millions they are spending on fighting labelling of GM foods on proving that GM foods are safe. I suspect they already know the answer to this and don’t want us to know. The health of Americans whose food production contains 70-80% of GM foods should be a warning to the rest of us. We do not need or want GM foods.

As a Canadian in complete terror of the sweeping policy changes that would be made behind closed doors and without my consent, I completely stand behind the NZ efforts to shut this thing down, and am doing what I can where I am. I hope that internationally enough countries withdraw that it just becomes unfeasible to those few countries who remain, and they just scrap it. Hope beyond hope, I know, but sites like this give me hope!

Adrianna Kopczynska. (Canada). Free Trade agreements increasingly take away the ‘FREE’dom of ordinary civilians by limiting our governments’ room for manoeuvre and by putting business above all else – including our health, well-being and even financial prospects for those not fortunate enough to own a share of the companies that would benefits from these agreements. Please put your citizens first!
