She argued that the technical details are ‘largely over’ and the negotiations have entered the political zone. This presents important opportunities to influence those decisions and the fate of the agreement. Public opinion needs to be mobilised to tell the government what New Zealanders think about the key issues of secrecy, public health, foreign investors’ rights to sue governments, and of the extraordinary powers the US wields in this process.
