Ask your candidates where they stand on the TPP
Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) implementing legislation will be voted on in the Australian Parliament after the election – but many candidates have not yet made their positions clear.
Ask your MP or Senators to take a stand and publicly commit to voting against the TPP.
It only takes a couple of minutes and could have a big impact.
Want to do more? You can also:
1. Contact candidates in your area or attend a local event:
Help make the TPP an election issue by attending local candidates events or meetings in your area or contacting candidates directly. Here are some points you can make.
2. Send a Twitter message to Labor’s trade spokesperson, Penny Wong
If you have a Twitter account, you can ask the ALP to vote no to the TPP in Parliament. Here’s a Tweet you can send Penny Wong:
Hi @SenatorWong. Thanks for the ALP’s positive trade policy. Given the #TPP contradicts it, will the ALP vote against it in Parliament?
3. Write to your local paper or call talkback radio:
This is a great way to raise awareness in your community and put the pressure on local candidates to take a stand against the TPP. See our suggested talking points here.
