Obama's War on Cancer Patients: Breast cancer patient arrested for protesting TPP 'death sentence' clause

A clause in Barack Obama's Trans-Pacific Partnership would establish an even bigger monopoly for the pharmaceutical industry. The deal allows Big Pharma to block cancer patients from being able to access affordable drugs. Part of the US proposal extends de facto monopolies on biological medicines by up to eight years.

One cancer patient named Zahara Heckscher was recently arrested at a Westin Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, for speaking about the issue while a Trans-Pacific Partnership meeting was taking place in the building. The meeting included policymakers from dozens of countries. Zahara was not welcome there.

She led her protest in the hallway outside the meeting with a shirt that read, "I Have Cancer. I Can't Wait Years." She is protesting the "death sentence" in the controversial TPP trade agreement. Not only is the agreement selling away Americans' sovereignty, destroying democracy and putting corporations in control, but it is also blocking countless cancer patients from receiving affordable cancer medications.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Matt Drudge is sounding the alarm that TPP will end the independent media. They may try, just as the USSR tried to silence the Samizdat and European clergy and royalty tried to limit Gutenberg's printing press, but in the long run, this will fail. So, we should not let this threat being wagged at us distract from the more dangerous parts of TPP/TTIP which put together create a nightmare for people. With the TPP/TTIP ban on GMO labeling, people will have no choice but to be exposed to Glyphosate pesticides, which cause cancer. TPP/TTIP prohibits reporting on corporate wrongdoing over computer systems, which means we are not going to be allowed to tell you about these problems! Finally, TPP/TTIP blocking access to generic and low cost alternative treatments means rich people with cancer will be made poor and poor people with cancer will die off, all for the greed of the corporations.
