We’re excited to announce the launch of a brand-new website www.itsourfuture.org.nz. It will act as a hub for information, organising, and action around the TPPA in New Zealand, particularly leading up to the Auckland negotiation round. Lots of activities will be rolled out, including opinion polls, e-letters to MPs and petitions, a ‘Kiwi’s speak’ board to post photos and comments.
For those wanting to find out more about the TPPA there are accessible new information sheets about what New Zealanders stand to lose under the TPPA. So far these cover the overall effect of the TPPA on New Zealand; the TPPA’s implications for Tobacco and Alcohol regulation; the TPPA’s implications for access to medicines; and Investor-State Dispute Settlement under the TPPA. More will follow soon on the environment; genetic modification; financial regulation; information technology; intellectual property; te tiriti o waitangi; and culture. …
