On July 23, less than a week before the beginning of TPP Ministerial talks in Hawaii, we have visited the Japanese government’s TPP Headquarters at the Cabinet Secretariat Office. We have handed the list of supporters for our Urgent Appeal, which amounted to 110 groups and 3637 individuals.
Major Japanese media, including a national TV network, covered the news, leading to nealy 10,000 tweets. Among others, Nikkei’s English edition explained the event in the article “Why cosplay fans fear the TPP”.
Given the situation surrounding the TPP negotiation, we have decided to keep soliciting the supporters for the next (third) submission to the government. Your help would be very much appreciated.
