“The transparency clock has run out on the TPP,” WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said in a statement. “No more secrecy. No more excuses. Let’s open the TPP once and for all.”

WikiLeaks wants to raise US$100,000 to offer as a reward for whoever leaks the full text of the controversial free trade agreement, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

The news leaks website launched a fund-raising campaign Tuesday to come up with the bounty money. The free trade agreement, involving the U.S., Japan, Canada, Australia and eight other countries, has been negotiated in secret, and just three of its 29 chapters have been leaked.

I really want to see what this thing says. The secrecy surrounding this document is ridiculous and now everyone knows they're keeping it a secret. More in your face every day.

Trans-Pacific Partnership 2015: DC Protesters Demand To See TPP Text, Rebuffed By Obama Administration, Police

In the latest escalation of its campaign against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the nation's largest labor federation is calling on the Obama administration to declassify the full text of the proposed trade agreement. And on a rainy Tuesday morning in Washington, the AFL-CIO and its allies engaged in some old-fashioned political theater to make their point.
President Barack Obama has pushed back against critics who cite transparency concerns -- at one point,
accusing Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., of politically motivated fearmongering. Recently, the president said “there’s nothing secret about” the deal and anyone “can walk over today and read the text of the agreement.” On Tuesday, opponents decided to give it a try.


I hope someone is able to collect that $100,000.
