The Water Services Bill – NZ Outdoors Party submission to Parliament

Sue Grey

Sue Grey and Alan Simmons from the NZ Outdoors Party submitting on 22March 2021 on the Water Services Bill to Parliament’s Health Select Committee and the Magna Carta and fundamental rights that must be protected.

Frustrated, angry, disillusioned about the resurrected TPPA? – it’s not over just yet – make a submission by 18 April (instructions enclosed)

From It’s Our Future NZ

Don’t give up!
It’s incredibly important to make your voice heard at the select committee, otherwise they will say people are happy with the ‘new’ deal.
It’s Our Future has prepared some short templates for submissions. You can send as they are or add to and change them.
They have to be sent using Parliament’s submissions webpage.
THE CLOSING DATE IS 18 APRIL
You can access the submissions page here
Also make sure you say if you want to speak to the submission in person

in the city nearest to you.

 

Templates for submissions to the Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Committee on the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement on Trans-Pacific Partnership (aka the TPPA-11)

 

Option 1:

I support international agreements that address the challenges of the 21st century: climate change, Treaty justice, inequality and poverty, ending corporate rule by and for the 1%, survival of the planet and all its species.

 

The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, in any form, does the opposite.

 

That is why I oppose it, and why I demand that you, as our elected representatives, provide a real future for us and our children’s children, as set out in the petition presented to Parliament on 8 March 2018.

 

You cannot just ignore our voices.

 

If you ratify this Agreement, I will join the campaign for New Zealand to withdraw at the review you have promised within three years.

 

Option 2:

I oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, in any form. In its place, I call for a positive and progressive trade agreement that meets these 10 bottom lines:

  1. An end to secrecy, with democratic oversight at every stage of the treaty making process
  2. Unrestricted rights for government to protect the public interest, public services and the environment
  3. Unfettered rights to regulate overseas investment and investors, and no investor-state dispute settlement
  4. Honouring te Tiriti o Waitangi and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
  5. Guarantee that international obligations on human rights, labour, women, health and environment have precedence over commercial interests
  6. Positively create job opportunities through local procurement, public services, support for small businesses, and diversification of the economy
  7. Conduct independent impact assessments of the impacts of proposed agreements for the economy, jobs, health, te Tiriti and the government’s right to regulate
  8. Exclude local government from obligations under those agreements
  9. Protect the public role and responsibilities of the State
  10. Protect access to knowledge, privacy and digital rights

Option 3:

Labour and New Zealand First, you promised no TPPA. The CPTPP is the TPPA in drag. It was unacceptable before and it is unacceptable now.

 

I want you to negotiate agreements that will serve the people of this country, based on the petition presented to Parliament on 8 March 2018, not agreements that profit the 1%.

 

If you ratify this Agreement, I will join the campaign for New Zealand to withdraw at the review you have promised within three years.

 

 Option 4:

Our Tiriti, not your treaty.
