This week on CounterSpin: Wikileaks has leaked a draft chapter of the secretive Trans Pacific Partnership “free trade” agreement. The chapter, addressing intellectual property rights, favors corporations over the public, say critics. What do the corporate lobbyists and government negotiators have in mind for us? We’ll talk with Peter Maybarduk of Public Citizen.

This happened right before international climate change talks were getting underway. But are media making the connection between climate change and this catastrophe? We’ll talk to Anne Petermann of the Global Justice Ecology Project.
