TPPA in simple terms

Dear fellow environmentalists,

A Malaysian Muslim woman protestor poses for photograph holding an anti-TPPA (Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement) placard with U.S. President Barack Obama's caricature during a protest in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016. The Malaysian parliament is to hold a special sitting next week to debate on whether Malaysia should join the TPPA. (AP Photo/Joshua Paul)

I’m working on a series of articles on TPP, based on a very informative NGO workshop in Malaysia by Sanya Reid Smith from Third World Network. It’s a lot of content (about 20 articles) but she’s very good in making things simple and understandable. As you know the TPP cover many aspects of society.

I thought you might be interested in looking at some of the articles already written:

Impacts on the Environment

Impacts on the Economy

Taxpayers and Citizens

What if we don’t sign? What if we don’t comply? What if we withdraw?

The series is still ongoing, since we’re transcribing and organising the talk as quickly as we can before the issue goes into parliament next week. You can find the index of the entire series here.

Cheers,
Jun-E
