Our Senators have the power to stop the TPP -- the biggest corporate power grab of a generation -- and they’re up for re-election right now.

You don't have to be an expert! Be brief and cordial, and stick to your message. Remember personal messages are the most powerful.

Here are some talking points to get you started:

  • The TPP is a dangerous trade deal and it is a threat to our democracy;
  • The TPP allows foreign companies to sue our government over changes to law in Australia that hurt their profits. These cases are heard in secret tribunals that have no independent judges;
  • This would make it very hard for us to introduce laws that would address the worst effects of dangerous climate change, like curb companies' use of fossil fuels; 
  • The TPP gives big pharmaceutical companies stronger monopoly rights, which will push up the prices of crucial, and potentially life-saving medicines;
  • The TPP will bring a meagre 0.7% of economic growth after 15 years in Australia, as estimated by the World Bank;
  • The TPP contains weak labour rights and environmental standards that are not enforceable;
  • In short, the TPP's not in Australia's public interest and threatens our democracy.

Thanks so much for taking a stand against the TPP.
