The Trans-Pacific Partnership: the dirtiest trade deal, you've never heard of

So last night the TPP got the nod in the US. So what is it and what does it mean?

It's supposed to be a free trade agreement, but it apparently has some catches, particularly around medications and patents.

Sadly it's actually impossible to know what it means because to date it's a largely secret deal.

Before it gets the full nod it will need to be approved by our parliament. Then at least it won't be secret.

Depending on the wording it could have an impact on things like FixHepC.

Here's a video about the TPP from Get Up! Click the link to read about it on their site.
