Marching against TTIP and CETA
On Saturday 23rd of April in collaboration with the TTIP Information Network we organised a Say no to TTIP and CETA march. TTIP is the transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, an all-encompassing trade agreement between the USA and the EU and CETA is the Common Economic Trade Agreement between Canada and the EU.
The march was the culmination of weeks of organising and was a resounding success sending the message that TTIP and CETA are not good for Ireland or Europe. Indeed the action in Dublin was part of a European Day of action on TTIP and CETA that included protests from around Europe. In Dublin we gathered at the Central Bank at 2pm and some speakers shared their insight on the dangers of TTIP.
We then marched from the Central Bank offices on Dame Street to the European Parliament Information Offices on Mount Street. There we had more speakers and we had a reading of the The 2016 Proclamation of the Irish Oligarchy!
