In less than two weeks, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will be heading to a TPPA-11 meeting in Vietnam. As it stands, the TPPA-11 is nearly identical to the original TPPA. Both agreements have been negotiated in secret with no chance for meaningful public participation. This is not how democracy should work.
It’s Our Future and our friends at Action Station have prepared an open letter calling on Jacinda to stop the clock on the TPPA-11 and other trade negotiations until New Zealanders have had chance to have their say. Sign up here and please share widely.
