APHEDA signs onto Statement denouncing TPP

Union Aid Abroad APHEDA has signed onto a Statement with feminist organisations and allies on the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) takeover of International Women’s Day.

On International Women’s Day (8 March 2018), the 11 countries involved in the revised Trans-Pacific Partnership (now known as the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP)) will meet in Santiago, Chile, to sign the ‘Fair’ Trade Agreement. The CPTPP is just a re-packaged version of the TPP and the deal will see a race to the bottom, with women hit hardest. It is a bad agreement for all, but even more horrendous for women. Moreover, signing away women’s rights on International Women’s Day is a new low.

The Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD) has created a Statement calling on the governments of the CPTPP to stop trading people for profit!
