TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership)

6 August 2015

 

THERE’S A DEAL BEING DECIDED IN SECRET BETWEEN AMERICA AND THE EU THAT COULD THREATEN OUR WAY OF LIFE. It could weaken our laws, threaten the future of our public services and let even more bee-killing chemicals on to our fields. All this, plus it could give corporations the power to sue the UK if they don’t like our laws. 

THE DEAL IS CALLED TTIP - short for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and its like a wishlist for big corporations.

BUT MOST PEOPLE STILL DON’T KNOW WHAT TTIP IS - OR HOW MUCH IS AT STAKE. SO KIM, SID AND DAVID AND OTHER 38 DEGREES MEMBERS WHO LIVE NEAR YOU ARE MEETING TO TRY AND CHANGE THAT.

 They’re meeting on Saturday 22nd August at _"Outside the Post Office in the Square, Chagford."_ to talk to members of the public about this dodgy deal - and how together, we can stop it. Can you join them?

TALKING ABOUT THIS DEAL IS THE LAST THING POLITICIANS WILL WANT US TO DO THIS SUMMER. But that’s not stopping 38 Degrees members from going out in our villages towns and cities across the UK, spreading the word about TTIP. Together, we can make sure the public turns against this dodgy deal, making it impossible for politicians to pass it.

WILL YOU JOIN KIM, SID AND DAVID AND THE TEAM IN CENTRAL DEVON? HERE ARE THE DETAILS AGAIN. TO FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION AND TO RSVP PLEASE CLICK THE BUTTON BELOW:

PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS DANGEROUS DEAL. It’s a risk to the future of the NHS, and our other treasured public services. It’ll weaken laws that protect our environment, and undermine international efforts to combat climate change. [2] BUT MOST PEOPLE AREN’T GOING TO FIND OUT UNLESS WE TELL THEM: TTIP IS BEING NEGOTIATED BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND THE MEDIA ARE STAYING WELL CLEAR.

38 DEGREES MEMBERS HAVE ALREADY MADE HUGE PROGRESS LIFTING THE SECRECY THIS DEAL IS SHROUDED IN, THROUGH EVENTS LIKE THESE IN THE PAST. This time last year, around 150,000 38 Degrees members had taken action against TTIP - now over 400,000 of us are involved in the campaign! [3]

SO, ARE YOU IN?  IT’S ON SATURDAY 22ND AUGUST AT 11AM.
