TPP Out of the Shadows - Jane Kelsey & Lori Wallach

 Registration is closed for this event
What they won't tell us and why we should be worried about the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Two of the world's foremost critical voices on international free trade and investment agreements — Lori Wallach and Jane Kelsey — will deliver presentations and take questions on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), a treaty being negotiated between the United States, New Zealand, and 9 other countries on the Asia-Pacific rim.

The TPPA is one the biggest political issues facing New Zealand, but one of the least publicised and least understood.

It involves eleven Asian and Pacific-rim countries — including the United States — and it being negotiated in secret with no possibility of public oversight. If it goes ahead, we risk major damage to our economy, our environment, our health, and the ability to shape our own future.

More information can be found on the It's Our Future site, together with fact sheets on the TPPA's impact on medicines, environment, finance, GM, investment and tobacco & alcohol.
