TTIP and CETA are two trojan trade deals being negotiated between the EU, the US and Canada which will impact on almost every aspect of our daily lives. They threaten everything from our food standards, to workers’ rights, to our public services, as well as giving corporations more power than our government. For more information visit www.ttip.ie.
On 13th May there will be a possible vote at European level on CETA. We need to convince our political representatives to vote against this deal. If it goes through, it means Ireland and other countries will be subject to ISDS, which will give foreign corporations the power to sue our government for changes in public policy that affect their profits, such as raising the minimum wage or improving environmental standards.
