The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership - TTIP - (like all the other free trade agreements) is being negotiated in secret but the text of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), between Canada and Europe, has been leaked online. Glynn Moody highlighted a detailed analysis which translates the CETA's Orwellian doublespeak into plain English, explaining its consequences. Similar text is likely used in TTIP.

An Analysis of the Final Text of the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement
Growing anxiety over TTIP, and the other trade agreements in negotiation, is reflected in a pan-European day of action planned for this Saturday, 11th October, for which concerned European citizens are mobilising to raise awareness of the attack on democracy and demonstrate the breadth and depth of opposition to these agreements.
These upcoming trade deals threaten our already weak democracies and pave the way for an attack on the environment, health systems, food, jobs, public services, digital rights and much more.
