The trouble with TTIP

Although the European Parliament postponed the vote on the controversial TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement, the threat to democracy, health and the environment hasn't gone away.

Some opponents are focused on ensuring the UK's National Health Service (NHS) is exempted from TTIP, others on removing the Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provisions.

Removing these would only provide temporary respite to the NHS and democracy - these agreements are a progression towards full corporate control of government and our existence. We're already well on the way to, what is in practice, fascism (fusion of corporations and state); we should be reversing this process rather than allowing more foundations to our enslavement to be laid.

Just say no to TTIP, TPP and all the other so called free trade agreements, which are more about removing health and environmental protection than facilitating trade.
