TISA, TTIP and TPP continue to be negotiated in secret, asWikiLeaks recently released a new leak from the core text and annexes of the updated TISA (Trade in Services Agreement), a trade agreement currently being negotiated by members of the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

If you want to know what TISA means in 7 words, it’s this: total privatization and commodification of public services. Unfortunately, once something is privatized, it becomes very difficult to ever get it back into the public hands.

Of the three “T-Treaties”, TISA is the largest, encompassing 24 countries (including power blocs such as the European Union) which produce over 2/3rds of global GDP, yet has received the least attention. Protests against the TTIP(Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, negotiated primarily between the US and EU) have been strong, to the point that several European government officials have publicly stated that the treaty doesn’t look like it will pass. Protests have also been strong against the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership), which is being negotiated primarily among the US, Japan, Canada, Australia and other Pacific nations.
