It’s almost impossible to keep anything secret these days – not even the core text of a hyper-secret trade deal, the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA), which has spent the last two years taking shape behind the hermetically sealed doors of highly secure locations around the world. According to the agreement’s provisional text, the document is supposed to remain confidential and concealed from public view for at least five years after being signed! But now, thanks to WikiLeaks, it has seeped to the surface.

Le Tisa (Trade in Services Agreement) est un accord de libre-échange sur le commerce des services, en négociation depuis 2012 hors du cadre de l’Organisation mondiale du commerce (OMC), dans la plus grande opacité. Avant juin 2014, il était resté presque secret. Seules des fuites avaient permis d’en percevoir l’ampleur et les dangers. Wikileaks vient de révéler à nouveau des documents clé des négociations en cours. Dont l’avant-projet d’avril 2015 qui va servir de base au prochain round de discussions, qui aura lieu la semaine du 6 juillet.
