Aotearoa Is Not For Sale present: Rally in opposition to the TPPA.
Tuesday, December 4th, 12noon, Midland Park, Lambton Quay
The `NZ vs Trans-national Corporations’ live boxing match
MusicShow your opposition to the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), a secret ‘free’ trade agreement being negotiated by the NZ government.
The next round of negotiations will be conducted in Auckland from 3-12 December.
The stakes are high. TPPA will compromise New Zealand’s sovereignty and democracy in exchange for some more butter exports. If the TPPA goes ahead NZers risk damage to:
- Affordable medicines;
- Environmental protection;
- Financial regulation;
- Internet Freedom;
- Workers rights;
- GMO labelling;
- Local businesses;
- Te Tiriti o Waitangi and more!
What’s more, if the TPPA is signed in its present form overseas companies will have the ability to directly sue the NZ Government in secretive international tribunals for actions which reduce the value of their investments in New Zealand. This is called Investor-State Dispute Settlement and other similar agreements Australia is being sued by big tobacco for introducing plain packaging of cigarettes, and Quebec is being sued for banning fracking!
New Zealand risks similar lawsuits if we sign the TPPA.
This New Zealand’s fight of the Century. NO TPPA! No to Corporate Bullies being given a free reign over NZ domestic affairs and future.
NZ’s Sovereignty is under attack. When are sovereignty, democracy and our ability to determine our future is under attack – STAND UP! FIGHT BACK!
Help us stop this Government signing away our future – Stop them signing the TPPA. – NO TPPA!
