Headline: New Zealand just a ‘minnow’ in the TPPA

TPPA2

The Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) will increase the power of global corporations, and be a bit like the Sky City convention centre deal on “super steroids”, Professor Jane Kelson told a Dunedin audience.  She described New Zealand as a “minnow” in the controversial deal.  The full Otago Daily Times article can be read here.

Meanwhile, Jane Kelsey will be providing an update on the TPPA in Wellington, Wednesday 4 March at 5.30pm at Connolly Hall, Guildford Terrce. She will be joined by Simon Terry from SustainabilityNZ, Hadyn Edmonds of Consumer NZ, and Dr Gay Keating, who was a signatory to a recent letter to the Lancet expressing concerns about the TPPA.

A national day of action is also planned for Saturday 7 March.   People are gathering at 15 locations around New Zealand to express concern – more information is available at http://www.itsourfuture.org.nz/7-march/.  Details of the Wellington event can be found here.
