No avenue for citizen engagement in controversial TPP talks

Mon, 07/07/2014 - 16:07 -- Josh Tabish

This week, members of the OurFairDeal.org Coalition are headed to Ottawa, Canada to be part of the most recent round of Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, taking place July 3-11. The negotiators have created no formal way for civil society groups or members of the public to participate in this round of discussions.

The talks were originally set to take place in Vancouver, but, with just under a week to go until the round started, the location was changed to the nation’s capital in Ottawa - nearly 3,500km away.
