Despite its Earth-shattering status as one of the biggest and most controversial trade deals we’ve seen in many years, the TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) has received very little coverage in the US media.
But protests and opposition to this Pro-Corporate Dream Bill has raged across Europe. And in America, another similar deal that directly affects us, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TTP) looms in Congress. If passed, the TTP will make passage of the TTIP easier.
In Europe alone, over 3 million signatures have been gathered by the website Stop TTIP.
Recently, over 250,000 people turned out against the secretive trade deal in what’s being called the biggest rally in Germany in many, many years — and with what’s at stake for people who care about GMOs, food and chemical standards and national sovereignty from corporations, it’s easy to understand why.
