Australia’s future hangs in the balance. Don’t put Australia’s sovereigny above profits for multinationals.

Australia needs to be an independent country and look after the interests of all Australian citizens. The TPP is being negotiated in secret and that gives cause for alarm and concern about the future of Democracy in this country.
Trans national companies have only one objective and that is profit not the interests of any nations interests. Globally there is a push to weaken democracies so companies can dictate the terms they do business in any given country. This is a very dangerous development because it has the potential to lead to the weakening of human rights, falling living standards, and the break down of the rule of law.
Over centuries societies have evolved with all the checks and balances to keep us from slipping into tyrannical dictatorships and if companies are going to get more power globally could lead to catastrophic outcomes for the majority. J.Sievers
