The TPPA trade agreement the USA is trying to get Pacific nations to sign up for (including NZ)
IS SECRET !!!!
Julian Assange/ Wikileaks have been able to find out some information and have made this public. Officially, no-one knows what this agreement is really saying - and yet the NZ government is prepared to sign up.
This is lunacy. Come out and protest tomorrow.
If your town or city is holding a protest tomorrow and it is not mentioned in this poster, please add a Comment with your contact details on the end of this post -

- Time (most are 1pm)
In the words of WikiLeaks’ Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange,
“If instituted, the TPP’s IP regime would trample over individual rights and free expression, as well as ride roughshod over the intellectual and creative commons. If you read, write, publish, think, listen, dance, sing or invent; if you farm or consume food; if you’re ill now or might one day be ill, the TPP has you in its crosshairs.”
Current TPP negotiation member states are the United States, Japan, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, Chile, Singapore, Peru, Vietnam, New Zealand and Brunei.
For a better working life
