Sydney firm to print activist flyers

Left-wing advocacy group GetUp will print 35,000 door hangers to blitz marginal Labor electorates in Sydney in an effort to kill the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Spokesman Mick Gibb says the hangers are likely to be printed by Sydney firm Art & Soul Printing, though this is yet to be confirmed.

The wide format-focused printer recently bought a new Intec ColorSplash CS5100 to revamp its neglected commercial digital business, and will likely use that to print the hangers.

Volunteers will hit the streets in the lead-up to the ALP National Conference on July 24-26 to urge the Federal Opposition to vote down the controversial TPP trade deal the organisation fears will hurt Australia’s interests.

“GetUp members will be distributing the door hangers in key ALP electorates to share more information about the secretive deal,” it says.

“The door hangers will shine a light on a cloak and dagger international trade deal while asking voters to contact their MP to share their thoughts.”

GetUp is asking members and the public to donate money to cover the printing and distribution costs, saying $9 will buy 20 hangers and $110 for 250 of them.

The organisation says the TPP will allow foreign companies to sue the Australian government for decisions that adversely impact on their investments here, including legislation that protects the environment.
