#STOPTTIP: HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS PROTEST TRADE DEAL WITH US IN BERLIN

4 posts in this topic

 

Protesters from a range of political groups have gathered in central Berlin for a protest against TTIP, a trade deal between the US and the European Union that critics say will benefit large corporations at the expense of average Europeans.

Trade unions, environmental groups, charities and opposition parties were among the organizers of the rally, which went from the main railway station in central Berlin to the national parliament. According to activists, 250,000 people turned out for the event, while Berlin police claimed the number was closer to their initial expectation of 100,000.

Marchers banged drums, blew whistles and held up posters reading “Yes, we can – Stop TTIP.” One group dragged a giant wooden horse – a reference to the Trojan horse of Greek legend – to demonstrate how the trade deal is being sneaked into law by corporate lobbyists and EU officials through subterfuge.

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is meant to improve trade between the US and the EU, bringing tens of billions of dollars in extra profits to businesses.

Just what the world needs...more profit! They don't say who is getting screwed......as always these trade agreements are about lining the pockets of the few while fleecing the people that actually do the work.
