I was listening to the radio on the way in to work this morning and they were talking about the so called “Free Trade Agreement” and if Australia’s involvement in Iraq might have lead to it’s “favourable” conditions. Lets give the FTA a bit of a look over and see who it favours-
Is it good for the environment? No, No and No.
Is it good for Australian intelectual property laws? No, No, No, and No.
OK but it must be good for the economy? A very resounding No.
So when you hear the FTA discussed remember just who it favours; Uncle Sam, there is no good for Australia in this agreement.
There is an online petition here and another coming here or write to your local MP!
Update: Academics claim FTA will push medicine costs higher.
