Public Meeting on Wednesday April 23 at 7.30 pm in the Archway Methodist Hall on the evil TTIP treaty

Haringey Greens have organised a public meeting on the “Trans-Atlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP)” for  Wednesday April 23rd, 7.30pm at the Archway Methodist Hall

(middle of the Archway roundabout)

Please come to this!

The TTIP is a dangerous new treaty being cooked up between the EU and the USA.  It’s called the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.   It ia apparently being orchestrated by big companies in order to secure their interests over those of the consumer, the poor, and the environment.   It may make it impossible to re-nationalise any public service that’s been sold off or contracted out -like the railways or bits of the NHS.   It will let companies sue governments about almost any policy that’s against the company’s interest. It may threaten environmental regulations, safety rules, and workers’ rights.

It’s being talked through in secret. The European Commission promised a public consultation period in March – but nothing’s been announced about that.     Similar treaties have got some governments (e.g. Equador) big fines even for trying to get a company to pay its taxes properly.
