Earlier this week thousands of protesters took to the streets around New Zealand in a stance against the Governments proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPPA). The TPPA is a document that the Government is negotiating in secret with Asian and Pacific-rim countries including the United States. For Governments within these countries it is thought that the TPPA will enhance trade and investment, promote innovation, as well as aid economic growth and development.
While this seems to benefit the major corporations within New Zealand, ordinary civilians are concerned about the flow on effects it will have on their lives. As such the protests were aligned with the fact that the public believe the TPPA risks our innovative economy, pristine environment, health system and ability to shape our own future.
