Together with the US Government and the EU Commission corporation representatives compose a free trade agreement called TTIP in secret negotiations. It’s goal is to crack down trading obstacles. This vague formulation concretely means, that social, health and ecological standards in the EU will be lowered. Furthermore investment protection agreements between the EU and the USA will be alleged. These agreements will give a nation like legal status to corporations. So international corporations will be able to lever national legislation – in every country.
Still we are not powerless! The case ACTA showed: Public pressure and constructive resistance make an impact! We demand to reveal the concrete contents of TTIP negotiations! The EU commission should not sweep the negative aspects of the agreement under the table. The negotiating partners have to discuss problems and search for solutions together with citizens and organizations. Economic growth needs a juristic and democratic foundation! Investment protection agreements within TTIP have to become a public debate. No power shift in favor of international corporations!
