Get your MEP to give Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) the boot

This bright idea for free (as opposed to fair) trade is just what multinationals want. Yet another chance to reduce pay and conditions in Europe by opening up trade to outside multinationals.

Incredibly , TTIP allows firms to take countries to court if actions could affect their profits. this could be a restriction on cigarette marketing .

It could even be an improvement on workers rights that gets a country sued.

There is no jury to protect us, as cases are heard by corporate lawyers , and no country or elected body has a veto.

Well except your MEP’s that is. Get hold of your MEP’s  , and tell them that all you want for Christmas is them to vote down TTIP in the European parliament.

If they don’t Scrooge will make a comeback with interest.
