Talk about the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations, Public Meeting - St Matthew's In The City, Auckland, 7 December 2010


Audio and Images from Simon Maude

On Tuesday night December 7 the public were invited to Auckland church St Matthew's in the City, to hear Prominent law professor Jane Kelsey, of Auckland University and others explain their opposition to secret trade rules negotiations underway at Sky City Auckland that week. Professor Kelsey, author of a new book on free trade "No Ordinary Deal", kicked-off the speeches. She detailed why we should all be worried about New Zealand’s laws being superseded by a ‘rules-based’ system negotiated amid secrecy. Mike Smith, activist and self-styled 'concerned citizen' spoke next suggesting NZ society needs a paradigm shift in its attitude to commerce. Then Sanya Reid Smith, a Swiss-based lawyer, gave the audience some concrete examples of how rule changes could affect our quality of life. The speeches were wrapped-up by Andrew Campbell, FINSEC’s TPP campaign director. Campbell said National and Labour party politicians need pressure from voters to push for transparent negotiations.
