Stop TTIP

Today (October 15th 2014) MEPs protested peacefully outside the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership's (known as TTIP) 'Reading Room' in the European Parliament to highlight the huge lack of transparency the current TTIP negotiations have; see photos below.  

We should be encouraged that MEPs are doing this but also terrified that those elected to represent us are not allowed to participate; that is not democracy. 

If you don't know what TTIP is please see this previous blog post with a short video.

If you haven't already please sign the self-organised European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) against TTIP and CETA petition (it is available in each EU language): www.stop-ttip.org or click here. They have 616,676 signatures so far and need 1,000,000.
