Despite being universally hated by almost everyone who knows about it, President Obama went ahead and authorized the signing of the TPP treaty this week. But it’s important to remember that this treaty isn’t just unpopular among Americans. There are just as many haters living in the other countries that are involved in the treaty.
For example, over a thousand people protested the deal in New Zealand on Thursday, despite the Prime Minister’s assurances that it “will enhance the prosperity of our people” and that “New Zealand is proud to be involved in this whole process.” But the most scathing rebuke of the treaty occurred the next day in Auckland, when Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce was being interviewed about the TPP.
A woman threw a pink dildo at the minister’s face, and cried out “that’s for raping our sovereignty” before she was hauled away by security. As silly as it may be, when everything we know about this treaty is considered, it seems like an appropriate response.
