What do they stand for?
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.
Why should we be concerned?
There are many reasons to be concerned and you can find more information about TTIP, CETA & TiSA in the Resources pages in your language.
But the main issues can be summarised as follows.
What is being done locally?
Civil society and grassroots activists across Europe have been opposing these deals over the past months by:
Collecting, producing and sharing information through media platforms, meetings and conferences
Organising local and national campaigns and protests
Organising petitions and participating in public consultations
Appealing to Members of the European Parliament and of National Parliaments
Pressuring member states governments to reject the deal
What is being planned internationally?
What can you do?
Organisations, individuals and alliances can participate by organising autonomous decentralised actions across Europe. We welcome diversity of tactics and solidarity actions from across the world that will help inform, engage and mobilise people locally.
On this site you can find the list of events already planned and the list of groups supporting the action. Get in touch with the organisers to find out how to get involved or add your own group and event to the list.
If nothing is planned in your town then why not organise your own event? It only takes a few dedicated people to make a successful action!
