It’s rumoured Auckland is hosting TPPA signing on Feb 4th – a call to action

A TPPA update here from the ActionStation website:

“Big news! I have heard through the political grapevine that Auckland will be the host of the official TPPA signing ceremony on February 4th. That’s just 50 days away! Plans are underway for one heck of a welcome party, so watch this space.

Behind the scenes here at ActionStation we’ve been working hard to build our crowdfunded TPPA information website. [1] The website will launch in early January and is designed to make it easy for you to understand and share what the TPPA means for everyday New Zealanders, as well as influence the parliamentary process of ratifying (formally signing) the deal (as much as we can with this flawed and undemocratic process).

The website will feature information drawn from peer-reviewed analysis of the 6000-page agreement currently being conducted by the New Zealand Law Society. [2] That analysis is then handed to our team of volunteers and paid helpers who are putting it into language we can all understand, without a law degree.

Currently, 54% of polled New Zealanders do not want us to sign the TPPA. [3] Our goal is to bring that number up to 65 – 70%, with the help of this website and all of you…

Let’s keep this momentum going in 2016, because we have a lot more good to do together.

Thank you, for everything,

Laura, Marianne, Nina and Ryan”
