Trouble is that the people of New Zealand are not allowed to know or express an opinion on the free trade agreement before it is signed and the signals which the Government is sending off about Tibet implies a double standard which may apply to Kiwis too.
If the Free Trade agreement is so wonderful and so advantageous then why are Kiwis not allowed to see what is on the table ?
If we could read...debate and participate in the agreement to protect our interests and rights then I'd say fine, but we're not allowed to.
