In December, Australian government representatives will attend the World Trade Organization negotiations in Bali - and we think you should know what they’ll be talking about.
Over the past three years, negotiations on a trade treaty called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) have been going on in complete secrecy. These negotiations will continue in Bali.
There’s a lot at stake across many key issues facing Australian consumers today. Reports suggest the TPP could allow overseas corporations to sue our government for making laws on behalf of the Australian people.
This may mean that the Australian government could not make decisions on issues like food labelling, public health, energy, copyright and more! But because the detail of the agreement won’t be public until the treaty is signed, consumer groups and the public can't have their say.
We’re calling on the federal government to release the details of what's in the TPP. We deserve to know what is being put up for grabs.
Sign our petition calling on the government to bring consumers to the table and release the text before the meeting in December. Don’t let Australia trade consumer rights away.
