What do you know about TTIP
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a comprehensive free trade and investment treaty currently being negotiated – in secret – between the European Union and the USA.
But why is that and what do we know about it? Which sectors does it affect and what consequences will it have on our everyday life?
Let’s all learn more about it, so that we can disseminate the information and build up the resistance!
TTIP is a fascinating topic: it shows precisely how capitalism works – and the power that still remains with politics.
