Uni students lobby to #BlockTheTPP

October 22, 2016: It's great to see students from the University of Melbourne chapter of Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) taking to Twitter to lobby Labor Trade Spokesperson Jason Clare to #BlockTheTPP.

The students share AFTINET's concerns about the TPP's impact on access to medicines in the developing world and the cost of longer biologics monopolies here in Australia.

Labor, the Greens and the Nick Xenophon team have the numbers to block the TPP's implementing legislation in the Senate, which would prevent the deal from being ratified in Australia - however they have not made a public decision about how they will vote on this legislation.

Check out the students' campaign on Twitter and join in using the hashtag #BlockTheTPP!
