Civil Society Actions
In light of the 17th round of Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations that took place from May 15th to 24th, 2013 in Lima, Peru, a campaign was launched by Peruvian civil society groups, which was termed "No Negociable". These groups, which include Red Peruana por una Globalización con Equidad (RedGE), launched the coalition in order to oppose the agreement's harmful intellectual property and investor-state dispute settlement provisions. Their actions have included a petition aimed at Peruvian President Ollanta Humala Tasso, which now counts over 3,000 signatures. These organizations also organized events in Lima during the negotiation round, including a public forum, which took place on May 16th, 2013 and a public rally the following day, on May 17th.
