TPP Protests November 7-8, Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide, Perth
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a trade agreement being negotiated between Australia, the US and 10 other Pacific Rim countries. But the agenda is being driven by the US on behalf of its major pharmaceutical, media and other corporations, which want to reduce our rights to affordable medicines, internet freedom, local culture, labour rights and the environment.
TPP officials and Ministers met in Canberra and Sydney recently, and faced protest rallies and critical media coverage. TPP Trade Ministers will meet again in November to try to finalise the main points of the deal. We are joining others around the world to say no to trading off our rights.

Early October 2014 the fear and loathing was palpable… my friend & colleague Marziya MohammedAli told me about the verbal and physical abuse that’s flowed from politics and some media politics coverage of “Terror Australis.”
Marziya is doing PostGrad work at ECU, and has been a Lectureer, Tutor, Researcher and Project manager at ECU.
