Fair Food Adelaide’s March Against MonsantoÂ project invite you to take action about the Trans-Pacific PartnershipÂ by emailing Trade Minister Andew Robb.
The Trans Pacific Partnership campaign by Getup asks you to please consider writing a quick email to Trade Minister Andrew Robb: tell him not to sign.
The Trans Pacific PartnershipÂ will allow corporations to sue the government
- if they don’t like our food labelling,
- if they don’t like our ban on GM in foods over 1%,
- if they don’t like SA’s GM moratorium,
- if they don’t like us banning gas fracking of farmlands and wilderness
- if any legislation interferes with their business plans
The TPP willÂ make medicines vastly more expensive and generally undermine Australia’sÂ sovereignty. Â Our federal, state and local governments will be beholden toÂ foreign multinationals when writing our laws through fear of being sued.

“New leaks revealed recently by Wikileaks suggest the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) looks as bad as we feared â€“ if the leaks are true, foreign companies could take legal action against Australian governments for making regulations in the interests of protecting our environment or food safety. This deal stands a real chance of putting our sovereignty and democracy at risk”.
“In this interview last week, Trade Minister Robb suggests he hasn’t heard from many Australians who are concerned â€“ even though more than 80,000 of us have taken action so far. Let’s show him just how many of us are concerned about the TPP”.
