"Central Auckland has ground to a halt as trade ministers signed the TPP today. All streets around Sky City Convention Centre and motorway on and off ramps leading to the central business district have been blocked by protesters. ... The agreement is designed to free up trade [sic] and investment between the countries, but has been a beacon for controversy for several years, mainly due to the secrecy of the deal, lack of public consultation and fears New Zealand's sovereignty could be diminished."
