Fair trade not free trade –
signing onto the TPP threatens
our healthcare system.
We want to bring the
Robin Hood Tax to Australia –
tax international financial
transactions and spend
the proceeds on
essential public services.

The NSWNMA is part of the campaign for a financial transactions tax (FTT) (Robin Hood tax) in Australia, with the money raised to be used on public services such as health and aged care. We work with our affiliates Public Services International (PSI) and the Sydney Alliance in this campaign for tax justice.

The Australian Government is negotiating a series of free trade agreements, which may prove harmful to our communities. The TPP threatens to make medicines more expensive, TISA threatens wholesale privatisation of public services and the China Free Trade Agreement threatens to undermine jobs and wages in Australia. All of them, including a deal with Korea, could allow multinational companies to sue democratically-elected governments (state, federal and local) if legislation aimed at protecting our health care or environment affects their profits. This is why NSWNMA supports AFTINET in saying ‘Fair trade not free trade’.
*Contact NSW Federal Senators and ask them to vote NO on implementing the TPP legislation.
