No TTIP! UK Tour & National Action Day

We are running a tour in the United Kingdom with War On Want, UNISON, WDM and other partners to raise awareness and take action against the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Currently being negotiated in secret between the EU and USA, TTIP is set to be the biggest transfer of power to transnational capital that we have seen in a generation, and it is up to us to stop it. There is already a major campaign against TTIP across continental Europe, and we aim to build one in Britain too.

All the events are free and open to everyone - tell your friends! There's no need to sign up in advance, but you can do so via Facebook to give us a sense of how many people are coming to each.We are running a tour in the United Kingdom with War On Want, UNISON, WDM and other partners to raise awareness and take action against the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
