ETU Canberra Rally to Stop the China Free Trade Agreement

Paul Lister - Wednesday, August 05, 2015

The Abbott Government negotiated the terms of the China Free Trade Agreement in secret because it comes at the cost of local jobs, worker safety, workplace rights and community safety.

Next Monday we're rallying in Canberra to stop the China Free Trade Agreement and demand the Government renegotiate the deal in the interests of the community.

Use your lunch break to join the rally – more information in the attached flyer. RSVP here.

WHEN
August 10, 2015 at 12pm - 1pm

WHERE
Garema Place, Canberra
25 Garema Pl
Canberra, ACT 2600
Australia

The public is overwhelmingly against this deal and making our message heard is crucial to protecting local jobs. Invite your friends and colleagues. See you there.

  • John Kaye, Greens NSW MP
  • Lee Rhiannon, Greens Senator
