WHO'S GONNA CALL THE SHOTS?
(Hint: Probably not us )
The TPPA takes away our democratic right to decide our own laws and policies in ways that best serve the national interest. It was negotiated in secret and there has been zero public input into the draft text of the agreement.
CAN WE REALLY BE SUED?
(The short answer is: Yes)
While New Zealand has had no ISDS (the mechanism that allows corporations to sue countries) cases taken against it, under TPPA we could face exposure to US companies - the most litigious in the world.
It's not a healthy democracy if you can't understand it.
