Fighting FTAs : Japanese resistance to TPP

Get Flash to see this player.


Listen to an interview with Japanese activist Yasuo Kondo, who speaks critically on the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership (TPP) trade agreement.


Kondo works with People’s Action Against TPP, describing the agreement as an “initiative by global corporations to maximize their rights and interests at the cost of ordinary peoples, marginalized communities. This is why we are fighting TPP, for the benefit of our future,” outlines Kondo.


Also in this interview specifics on neo-liberal economic reforms currently taking place in Japan, in relation to the TPP agreement and beyond, are outlined, including corporate-driven reforms to the agricultural and medical sector.


This interview was recorded and produced for bilaterals.org in May 2013 by Stefan Christoff.
