Sign the PETITION against damaging clauses in the RCEP

Sign the PETITION to the Senate against damaging clauses in the proposed RCEP (Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership) and in favour of enforceable workers' rights and environmental standards.

The RCEP is a massive trade deal being negotiated in secret between Australia, New Zealand, China, India, South Korea, Japan and the ten member countries of ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations). The proposed RCEP would cover half the world's population.

In the lead up to the 2019 Federal Election, we need to tell all political parties not to agree to damaging clauses in the negotiations.

See more information, including a printable flyer, here.

The legal clause which could allow Adani to sue Australia

Yet another example of why Labor should implement its policy against ISDS in all trade agreements, and remove it from current deals like the TPP.
