Out of the Shadows

The Trans-Pacific Partnership

What they won't tell us and why we should be worried about it

Monday 26th November
5.30 pm


Knox Presbyterian Church Lounge

28 Bealey Avenue

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 publicized and least understood.

It involves eleven Asian and P
acific-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.
