ISLINGTON ENVIRONMENTAL FORUM – MAIN ITEM THE IMPACT OF TTIP

The Islington Environment Forum will be holding a meeting on TTIP and its implications for the environment and sustainability in Islington and the UK (Cannot remember exactly what the initials stand for, but this is the secret deal being negotiated between the EU and the US, to level out the trading/business playing field between the EU and the US, and allow multinational companies to expand their businesses, and trample over European food safety regulations, environmental regulations, labour laws, involve themselves in bits of the NHS, and take elected governments to secret courts.)

Early evening (6.30-8.30pm) of Tuesday 3rd November

Freightliners Farm, soup provided (from recent experience I can report that the soup is delicious)..

Keynote speaker: Sam Lowe, lead Friends of the Earth UK TTIP campaigner.

As one of the central figures in the UK civil society movement against TTIP Sam Lowe has participated in public debates with MPs/MEPs and provided expert witness to the Parliamentary Environmental Audit Select Committee on the potential environmental impacts of TTIP.

“TTIP, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.”
