GATT

Is used to usurp US law in the BP gulf leak.

This page has links to the WTO agreements that comprise the GATT.

As explained on the BP gulf leak page, attorneys, corporations, government agencies all fail to mention GATT, as if it has no relation to the impact of BP's business in the gulf of Mexico and US citizens. There are two things this does.

One: If GATT does control BP's activities, and people know it, and BP ignores the EPA as if they have no authority, then by not revealing that GATT controls, the fact that the Constitution was usurped by executive signature remains unknown. Treason is concealed.

Two: If people knew GATT was in control, they could look up aspects of it, such as I have below, from this link,

that could be used to stop the corporations from destroying environment.

URUGUAY ROUND AGREEMENT
Decision on Trade in Services and the Environment

"Noting that since measures necessary to protect the environment typically have as their objective the protection of human, animal or plant life or health, it is not clear that there is a need to provide for more than is contained in paragraph (b) of Article XIV;"

Article XIV: General Exceptions

"Subject to the requirement that such measures are not applied in a manner which would constitute a means of arbitrary or unjustifiable discrimination between countries where like conditions prevail, or a disguised restriction on trade in services, nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to prevent the adoption or enforcement by any Member of measures:

(b) necessary to protect human, animal or plant life or health;"
