Kevin Toomey OP shares his personal submission on the TPPA with us. In the introduction he makes three points about the TPPA:
- That our government should not pass this Agreement into law, as it deleterious effects outweigh its perceived benefits.
- That the Agreement takes away New Zealand citizens’ sovereign rights, and should be rejected on that basis alone, as anti-democratic as well as lacking judicial independence.
- That from an environmental perspective, the whole Agreement is not in the public interest, and should be rejected.
