Citizens Before Corporations

Canadian TTIP deal is on the ropes – MEPs listened to you!

Last week was full of successes in our fight against the toxic trade deals set to undermine our democracy. UK parliamentarians listened to your concerns and spoke out in Brussels.

Across Europe, politicians sounded the death knell for hated EU-US deal TTIP. In Germany, France and Austria, leaders all 'spoke out against the deal. *

Your MEPs are listening - tell them that now is the time to kill off TTIP and CETA for good!

CETA is no different from TTIP. It champions the same agenda of deregulation, privatisation and ‘corporate courts’, all with the same aim – big business profits, whatever the cost to people and planet. Worst of all, under CETA, the UK could be sued in CETA’s corporate courts up to 20 years after Brexit.

At last week’s European Parliament trade committee meeting, UK MEPs highlighted that they have repeatedly heard concerns about CETA from their constituents. The MEPs said they are worried about CETA’s:

  • agenda for workers’ rights, public services, and its proposed ISDS ‘corporate courts’
  • failure to meet five European Parliament conditions for ISDS ‘corporate courts’
  • strong rights for investors, but weak rights for workers - an “inequality” in trade deals that must be addressed.

Trade deals like TTIP and CETA do more harm than good to Europe.

Your MEPs are listening - tell them that now is the time to kill off TTIP and CETA for good!

* But as we explained on Politics.co.uk, this about-face is connected to their desire to push through EU-Canada deal, CETA.

Tell your MEPs - now is the time to kill off TTIP and CETA for good
