Despite its secrecy and lack of appropriate media coverage, many people
have heard about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the huge free trade
agreement being negotiated by some of the biggest economies on the Pacific
rim.

Some of it details have been leaked by WikiLeaks, exposing the
behind-closed-dorors machinations of governments and large corporations.

But very few people have heard about PACER-Plus, a free trade agreement
that will include the small island states at the heart of the Pacific.
