The TPP was called the “worst trade deal ever.”
Now it’s back from the dead, and for women, the worst aspects of the deal are still included.
The CPTPP – the ‘zombie TPP’ – has just passed through the House of Representatives with support from both the LNP and the ALP. The Senate Inquiry into the CPTPP also just released its report, admitting that the deal could negatively impact on women’s rights.
Now that the report is out, our Senators will be deciding whether or not the zombie TPP will go ahead in Australia before Parliament resumes in October –so the time to put the pressure on our Senators to say no to this deal and stand up for women’s rights is NOW.
