TTIP LEAK! - US vs EU

Recommended Posts

 Ukshep    21,686

Greenpeace Netherlands has released secret TTIP negotiation documents. We have done so to provide much needed transparency and trigger an informed debate on the treaty. This treaty is threatening to have far reaching implications for the environment and the lives of more than 800 million citizens in the EU and US.

Whether you care about environmental issues, animal welfare, labour rights or internet privacy, you should be concerned about what is in these leaked documents. They underline the strong objections civil society and millions of people around the world have voiced: TTIP is about a huge transfer of power from people to big business.

You can see the documents below if you want to download them.

But in short for those too lazy to read. They paint a very bad picture. Just how bad?  check this!

TTIP leaked documents could spell the end of controversial trade deal, say campaigners

They indicate that the US is looking strongly to change regulation in Europe to lessen the protections on the environment, consumer rights and other positions that the EU affords to its citizens. Representatives for each side appear to have found that they have run into “irreconcilable” differences that could undermine the signing of the landmark and highly controversial trade deal, campaigners say.

For instance, the papers show that the US is looking to weaken the EU’s “precautionary principle” that governs how potentially harmful products are sold, Greenpeace says. The US has much weaker regulation that aims to minimise rather than avoid risks, and that same less strict regime could come to the UK and Europe under the deal.

More good news! Their collapse! Not ours!  Let that thing fall into a million pieces. But, as we are all aware, they will be back with it again and again and again, until they get what they want.  EU do not give up what they have not yet polluted!  

LOL now we can clearly see why they want to get rid of the internet.

Poor Monsanto can't spread their poison wide enough without trade agreements.
