Peril in the Pacific: Trans Pacific trade agreement threatens people and the planet

A new video from Friends of the Earth, U.S highlights the threats to the environment and human rights posed by the secret negotiation of the TPP deal and in particular its draft investment chapter.

The video illustrates these threats by telling the story of Chevron v. Ecuador, in which oil giant Chevron successfully sued the Ecuadorian Government in an international tribunal because an Ecuadorian court ordered Chevron to pay for the pollution caused by its operations in the Ecuadorian rain forest.
