With our choices regarding a healthy environment becoming increasingly more constrained as corporations gain ever increasing control over governments, (or corporations that are parading as governments … NZ is a corporation and is registered as such with the SEC in Washington, along with most of our former ‘government departments’), the agreement known as the TPPA looms as an even greater threat to freedom of choice.
Limited liability corporations have morphed into giant behemoths that enjoy virtually guaranteed immunity under a body of corporate law built up over more than a century. They owe their first allegiance, not to the public, but to their own shareholders, and their number one mandate is to maximize profits.The TPPA (Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement) is an agreement that our PM intends signing on behalf of all NZ citizens, with neither our consultation nor our consent. Negotiations around this agreement are taking place right now between our leaders and large multinational corporations in total secrecy. If signed, from the little we know that’s been gleaned from leaked documents, this trade agreement will give corporations even more control … and we New Zealanders, whom it concerns most … even less.
