Campaign to Oppose the Proposed Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a proposed trade agreement between the European Union and the United States potentially increasing corporate power making it more difficult for governments to regulate markets for public benefit by:
- Giving new powers to corporations to sue governments;
- Leading to more privatisation of public services like the NHS and education;
- Weakening workers’ rights and putting millions of jobs at risk;
- Reducing environmental protection and food safety regulation; and
- Becoming a new blueprint for future trade deals around the world.
A meeting is being organised by TTIP Awareness to develop a campaign to oppose this agreement and the de-regulation and attack on democracy that it represents.
The meeting will take place at 6.00pm on Wednesday 24 June 2015 in Room 01/006, David Bates Building, Queen's University Belfast. (Beside the McClay Library).
