“That’s for raping our sovereignty!”: Watch a Protester Slap a Politician in the Face with a Dildo for Supporting the TPP

Our grid depends on this mineral

Editor’s Note: Can you imagine if someone had done this to Obama? No, because most of America has no idea the U.S. even signed the TPP, he did it so quietly and the mainstream media blacked it out.

On Thursday, a protester in New Zealand threw a pink dildo at a high-ranking politician to voice dissent against the recently signed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The multinational trade deal has drawn severe criticism around the world for what many say is the codification of corporate hegemony.

New Zealand’s economic development minister, Steven Joyce, was attending an event celebrating New Zealand’s upcoming Waitangi Day, a holiday to commemorate the creation of the nation. When he was talking to the media, a female protester launched the sex toy at the politician, hitting him square in the face.

That’s for raping our sovereignty. That’s for raping our country, because of the TPPA and selling away our rights and our freedom,” she said as she was carried away by police.

The TPP has been thoroughly condemned by activists and industrial, environmental, and labor organizations. The agreement, which includes “Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Canada, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, most critically Japan and potentially Korea,” the Washington Post notes, has been accused of providing protections for a wide range of industries. The text addresses pharmaceutical companies, financial services, and even sanitary standards for food.

TPP has also been condemned for its attempts to strangle internet freedom in favor of copyright protection for media giants. It it also scorned for overlooking Malaysia’s immense human trafficking trade to include it in the deal.

One recent study found the deal could cost the United States 446,000 jobs, while another analysis concluded it will increase income inequality. Even the world bank has admitted the TPP will provide negligible economic benefits to the United States, Australia, and Canada.

The text of the TPP was kept secret over five years of negotiations, and the negotiations themselves have also been conducted without the public’s participation. The text was only released in November, and member nations signed the agreement in Auckland, New Zealand, this week. However, the TPP must undergo a two-year ratification process, and activists have vowed to continue fighting the bill’s final passage.

The deal has prompted ongoing protests, from Argentina, Chile, and Peru to Malaysia, Japan, United States, and New Zealand.

Steven Joyce, the minister hit with the pink dildo, has defended the TPP negotiations. “You can’t have a negotiation in the public domain without causing problems for the path of the negotiation,” he said.

He dismissed the woman who launched the dildo at him, making light of the situation. “We actually thought it was a little bit humorous at the end of it all … new experiences in politics everyday, it’s the privilege of serving,” he said, seemingly taunting the millions of humans around the world who understand that he and other politicians like him are, in fact, serving corporate privilege.
