Wellington protest against the TPP this Thursday

Join us to protest against the TPP

Thursday 16th December

Meet at Midland Park, 12 noon, to march to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, 195 Lambton Quay, Wellington

Are you concerned about the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP)?  Are you concerned about a so-called ‘free trade agreement’ across nine countries that would put a straightjacket around what policies and laws the government can adopt for the next 100 years?  Are you worried the effect this agreement could have in terms of allowing corporations to set the price of medicines? To have greater access to mining licences?  To end voluntary local content guidelines for media?  To restrict Treaty settlements?  Are you worried about increased privatisation of water, prisons, schools and hospitals?  Are you worried about rules that would allow foreign investors to sue governments, if a government passes a law that affects their profits?

Organised by TPP Action Group, a collection of union members opposed to the TPP.  For more information please email tppactiongroup@gmail.com

We will bring placards and a banner.  Feel free to bring your own too, and noisemakers!

Hope to see you Thursday,

Holly Donald and Francie Mountier

On behalf of the TPP Action Group
