Dont TTIP public services down the drain!

Public Meeting on the Trans-Atlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP)

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Archway Methodist Hall (middle of the Archway roundabout)

 

A dangerous new treaty is on the way between the EU and the USA. It’s called the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. It will let companies sue governments about almost any policy that’s against the company’s interest. It may threaten environmental regulations, safety rules, and workers’ rights.

And it’s being talked through in secret.

 

Public meeting – come and hear:

Jean Lambert  – Green MEP, co-author of a report on how the TTIP threatens public services.

David Malone – Journalist, author of ‘The Debt Generation’ and writer of one of the UK’s top critical blogs about finance and politics.

Linda Kaucher – Journalist, campaigner and critic of the TTIP.

John Hilary – Executive director of War on Want. Author of ‘The Poverty of Capitalism’.

  1. There is a huge problem with the TTIP for the developing world, especially the smaller developing countries. They cannot afford the huge legal teams the transnationals and other big companies usually can to defend their own interests and protect their citizens against oppressive exploitation. The TTIP should be stopped or, at the very least, reframed to take away this power from the big companies. They are steadily gathering all the controls into their own hands and disempowering smaller organisations of any kind that disagree with them or have a different set of values from naked profit.
