Sessions Reads the TPP and Exposes Its Contents, Other Elected Officials Should Do the Same

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is one of the few members of Congress who has taken the time to jump through the hoops and read the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). But, he has gone a step farther than other members – he told members of Congress what he read.

The following is a rough transcription of the interview posted originally at PressTV

Press TV: These charities are expressing their concern on the humanitarian situation in Yemen like Oxfam, Islamic Relief and Save the Children.

We are seeing again the disproportional use of force by the Israelis, this time against their own citizens who happen to be black. It is interesting that the race and violence that is at the center of these settler colonial projects have been exposed both in the US and now in Israel.
