"We want to live in a genuine democracy that puts people, not foreign investors and multinational corporations, first. We want the right to decide our own futures, as befits a modern democracy," said Edward Miller, spokesperson for It's Our Future.

Sound like the citizens from USA? Could it be a Bernie Sanders Rally? Could it be the cry from some South American country trying to break the yoke of Yankee Imperialism? Today it is New Zealand and the issue is the same world wide.

A glaring contrast from the USA's "be afraid, very afraid" to New Zealand's response of "I'd just say to the U.S. Embassy, Auckland isn't Ferguson and the police won't be shooting people," he said. "It'll be a peaceful demonstration, they should just relax and maybe they should come along--they might learn something." Indeed!

US Consulate to Citizens: Stay Away From New Zealand TPP Protest

Stay away from the Trans-Pacific Partnership protest taking place Saturday in New Zealand's capital, the United States Consulate has warned its citizens.

The Auckland action is one of over 20 that organizers have planned as part of a national day of action against the controversial pending trade deal.

The Consulate's security message reads, in part: "Approximately 8,000 people are expected to attend the protest. We urge citizens to avoid the protest march route as even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational. We remind citizens to always exercise caution when in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations."
