Give-A-Little fund for legal challenge to TPPA secrecy

A ‘Give-A-Little’ page http://givealittle.co.nz/cause/tppnosecrecy has been established for donations to support the urgent challenge to the Trade Minister’s refusal to release official documents on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) negotiations.

The proceedings were lodged in the High Court in Wellington on 5 August, asking for the case to be accorded urgency.
The Court is being asked to declare that the Minister got the law wrong and should release some or all the information asked for, including draft texts.

This application for judicial review is being brought in the names of Consumer NZ, Ngati Kahungunu, Oxfam, Greenpeace, Association of Salaried Medical Specialists, New Zealand Nurses Organisation, the Tertiary Education Union, and Professor Kelsey who made the original request.
