Europe and North America are currently negotiating two trade deals that could turn out to be the biggest corporate power grabs in history — TTIP and CETA. The treaties read like a corporate wish-list: secret courts that can sue our governments, the removal of environmental and health regulation and the degradation of working standards.


The big losers of the deals: ordinary people, like you and me.

Hundreds of corporate lobbyists and government officials thought it would be easy to push this massive trade deal through. But we weren’t taking the biggest corporate power grabs in history laying down.

We teamed up with more than 450 partner organisations all across the European Union to form a self-organised, EU-wide citizens’ initiative ‘Stop TTIP’. With over 2.7 million signatures, we have become the largest European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) ever. And now we are about to hand-deliver these millions of signatures to the European Commission.

Add your voice to the European Citizens’ Initiative against TTIP and CETA:

“We call on the institutions of the European Union and its member states to stop the negotiations with the USA on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and not to ratify the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with Canada.

    I don’t mind it going through as long as it doesn’t have any of these …ISDS, The treaties read like a corporate wish-list: secret courts that can sue our governments, the removal of environmental and health regulation and the degradation of working standards.

    For a good Economy you need to think of it as Recycling ?? this is the only way the Economy works well for all. But money has to be reinvested in Jobs, health, sustainable products, education, services, start ups. Consciousness, Renewable energy. Capitalism doesn’t work when it’s extreme. Cause it will collapse through Greed. Human rights. Planet rights. Workers rights. Democracy.
