This morning I submitted a letter to The Joint Standing Committee on Treaties, who are currently accepting submissions on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).
My letter advocated that the TPP’s is not in Australia’s public interest and threatens our democracy.
I don’t know if my letter will make any difference, but when looking at the details of the deal, I feel a responsibility to do something.
Do you know much about the TPP? Are you for, or against? Why or why not?
