TPP: Poison for Community Resilience

The past couple of decades of globalization have been a disaster for planetary ecosystems, indigenous peoples, and most middle-class citizens, but a gravy train for big investors, investment bankers, and managers of transnational corporations. This unprecedented expansion of international trade was driven by the convergence of key resources, developments, and inventions: cheap oil, satellite communications, container ships, computerized monitoring of inventories, the flourishing of multinational corporations, the proliferation of liberal trade treaties (including NAFTA), and the emergence of transnational bodies such as the World Trade Organization.

Reprieve for Druitt Trees but placement of construction compound on the Gardens and closure of footpath to go ahead.

Trees in Druitt Gardens threatened by a controversial development of retirement flats were given a reprieve after a nail-biting 6 to 5 vote by the Planning Committee. 450 letters opposed the tree works and the meeting had standing room only.
