Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)

Stop the corporate power grab 

The Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (or TTIP for short) is a so-called ‘free trade’ deal being negotiated by the EU and US. The deal will give big business more power over our society, environment, public services, and democracy.

Shamefully, the UK government is a major supporter of this deal, which would tighten the grip of big business over our society. TTIP could:

  • Grant corporations the power to sue governments;
  • Lock-in the privatisation of public services like the NHS and education;
  • Undermine workers’ rights;
  • Undo regulations that protects the environment, giving harmful industries like fracking an easier ride;
  • Remove food safety regulation to allow new GM crops, hormone pumped beef and chlorine washed chicken

But we can defeat this deal. Take action at www.wdm.org.uk/ttip
