Left Over #3

The Trans‐Pacific Partnership Agreement
An old agenda in a new wrapper

A talk and discussion about the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, an international trade and investment deal currently under negotiation. This has been presented by the government as a huge economic opportunity, but has been criticised as an unprecedented step towards corporate dominance.

We'll look at its history, and how it fits in with the New Zealand government's pro-business and anti-democratic policies over the last three decades. We'll also consider the rise and fall of the 'anti-globalisation' movement and how the opposition is shaping up this time around.

When: 7pm, Tuesday July 7th 2015
Where: 19 Tory Street (AKA 17 Tory Street), Wellington.
