The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) issue is causing more and more alarm as information about its secrecy and leaks about what it contains manage to emerge into the public consciousness.

In order to get left-wing journals involved in an issue with which they ought to have been leading and not lagging, I contacted the editors of both magazines and neither knew anything about the issues which would affect them rather deeply.

They invited me to give them more information and I gave them the names of writers and journalists who would be able to tell them a great deal more than I would have been able to.

The latest issues of Overland and arena have just been published and neither of them has anything about TPP in its contents.

If this is the best that left-wing journals can achieve then that says a lot about the state of left-wing politics in Australia.

The main-stream media have not had a great deal in their pages, but certainly more than nothing, and so far some of what has been written is not extreme in its right-wing views on the topic.

So, the only way to make TPP known better is to keep on publishing on my web pages all that we are able to gather from online journals and writers around the world.
