Prime Minister Turnbull and Trade Minister Andrew Robb have
just committed Australia to the dangerous and undemocratic Trans-Pacific
Partnership Agreement (TPP).
Here’s the catch – we have no idea what the Turnbull
Government has signed us up to. They refuse to release the text.
What we DO know about the TPP is this:
- Big pharamaceutical companies have been at the table pushing
for their interests to be protected. This could come at the expense of
affordable medicines and health care in Australia.
- We do know that “ISDS clauses” have been included in the
agreement which means big corporations can sue the government for acting in the
- And finally, it looks like the TPP is going to make it
harder for the government to take strong action on global warming.
Australians deserve to know what rights this government is
prepared to sign away (and whether the Labor Party is going to be strong enough
to stand up to them.)
