TPPA: Stop the Corporate Recolonisation of Pacific Countries
This petition made change with 676 supporters!
We, the indigenous people and residents of the Pacific wish to appeal to the United Nations Decolonisation Committee (UNDC) to put a stop to the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) on the grounds that not one of our leaders have been consulted and the realisation that this is a cynical attempt by the international corporations to re-colonise the Pacific as well as the rest of the world.
The UNDC was set up in 1961 as an ambulance at the bottom of the cliff, monitoring the implementation of the decolonisation process in all of our countries. So while we appreciate that it does not recognise new forms of colonialism and therefore unable to stop their propagation from the outset, we implore that they alter their thinking do so in this case. We now implore you this time to become the crash barrier at the top of the cliff.
The indigenous people of the Pacific have seen their sovereignty taken away by subterfuge and underhanded dealings two centuries ago and now we are seeing it happen again right before our eyes.
We hereby wish that the UNDC extend their charter to stopping further forms of colonisation beyond its current function of overseeing the dismantling of previous colonial structures.
We hereby ask that the UNDC tell the governments concerned from Chile to the USA to Japan to New Zealand that the signing of the TPPA is anathema to the indigenous people of the Pacific and a threat to our sovereignty. We insist that the signing of this undemocratic document should not happen at all or at least, not until all our leaders are consulted with.
