COMMENT:

This article from itsourfuture.org.nz clearly illustrates who the Government departments (former, they are now largely corporations) are in bed with. Why should a medical doctor not be speaking up about risks to customers regarding the TPPA Trojan Horse? Because their employers are in bed with corporate entities. NZ was once a welfare state in reality, now it is in name only, care for all is now a distant memory.

Prior to previous governments’ borrowing from the IMF our nation had free health care for all, free education and full employment. We looked after our own. That has all gone as our current generation fully pays for the conditions hidden within those loans … corporatization, privatization, the flogging off of our assets and the ultimate outcome … we are now the tail and not the dog. The borrower is servant to the lender. Goodbye sovereignty, hello debt slavery. This TPPA is basically the final nail in the coffin. We’ve been sold out completely by our government/corporation NZ.
