EU-US Trade Agreement.

EU-US Trade Agreement.

Invitation to a European strategy meeting for civil society organisations
Brussels 12-13 December
The proposed EU-US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP/TAFTA), is one of the
most ambitious projects of the European Commission. It may strongly affect social, labour and environmental rights on both sides of the Atlantic and deepen global trade and investment liberalization. Indeed, elites from both sides explicitly aim at greater “transatlantic regulatory convergence and harmonization” of future regulations between the EU and the US, in the only interests of transnational corporations and financial industry. The objective of the meeting is to bring together representatives of civil society organisations and social movements from across Europe that want to better understand the threats posed by the TTIP and want to work in a coordinated way to build a common strategy facing the proposed deal.
Meeting starts at 14.30 on 12 December and finishes at 15.30 on 13 December
A detailed Agenda and details about the venue will be circulated to registered.
Please register by sending an email to: info@s2bnetwork.org indicating your full name, the organisation you are representing, your arrival and departure time.
Deadline for registration: 6th December

The dangers of the EU-US-Trade & Investment Agreement (TTIP or TAFTA).

The Commission’s proposal for investor-state dispute settlement under the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)1 would enable US companies investing in Europe to skirt European courts and directly challenge EU governments at international tribunals, whenever they find that laws in the area of public health, environmental or social protection interfere with their profits. EU companies investing abroad would have the same privilege in the US.
