For two days the population of Auckland, New Zealand decided to show their insatisfaction towards their leader’s decision to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA).
The 15th of August 2015 was a beautiful day for democracy when 10 thousand people took it to the streets of Auckland in protest against the secrecy and lack of public participation behind the negotiations for the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement. Maori and Pakeha, young and old, all came together under one loud chant: TPPA NO WAY!
Almost six months after the first protest, on the 4th of february 2016 the city was once again taken over by peace keepers after world leaders signed the TPPA.Peace keeper were practicing acts of peaceful civil disobedience all over the city. A silent revolution had started and people were claiming back their power. The beginning of a tsunami of consciousness.
