Give evidence to Parliament on the TPPA
- Protest outside Select Committee hearings against the TPPA and support our allies giving evidence.
- The Select Commission is hearing evidence on the TPPA. They have said that there will be over 330 people giving evidence in three cities:
- Christchurch: On 31 March & 1 April at Christchurch City Council chambers, 53 Hereford St
- Auckland: On 7 & 8 April at Holiday Inn, 2 Ascot Road, Mangere
- Wellington: On 14, 19, 20, 27 & 28 April at Select Committee rooms, Parliament
People in other centres will be given an opportunity to present evidence by teleconference. See a Guide to giving evidence to a Select Committee.
Evidence that has already been presented to the Select Committee is here (other evidence will be added when oral evidence has been given) and some submitters have put theirs on It’s Our Future website here. See the IOF Oral Evidence and the IOF submission.
You could still apply to make a late submission but there is no guarantee they will accept it – theCommittee has said they would consider late submissions but only on a case by case basis. See our Guide to making a submission on the TPPA.

Declare your space a TPPA Free Zone
Make signs, print signs and erect signs that declare your spaces to be TPPA Free. You can declare your home, neighbourhood, community centre, school, workplace, local Council to be a TPPA Free Zone. These signs can go on your house, letter box, car, public space, or wherever. Let everyone you know to declare their spaces as TPPA Free Zones as well. Download printable assets here.
We can celebrate Upper Hutt as the first Council to declare itself a TPPA Free Zone; see the Media Release. Congrats to Greg Rzesniowiecki and others who made this happen.
Waiheke has become the first Local Board to declare itself TPPA Free. Shirin Brown, Waiheke Local Board representative has prepared a Guide for how Boards can go TPP free.
