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.
