Join us for our fortnightly meeting followed by a presentation and discussion on the implications of the TPPA on Australia and Latin America. What is the TPPA and what are the Latin American Social Movements saying about it?

The Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement is a free trade deal that will encompass nine or more countries from Latin America, North America and the Asia-Pacific. It will hamper governments' ability to create policies and pass laws and give new powers to corporations.

If the negotiations succeed this agreement will remove the rights of Governments to legislate in the best interests of their people if it threatens the profitability of corporations. Corporations with interests as vast as mining, Media, IP, Pharmaceuticals, Agriculture, Food security, Entertainment and much more.

This is a secret deal that has not being discussed in the open by the media so come along and get informed.
