TTIP pamphlet launched

A new People's Movement pamphlet explains how an EU-US trade and investment treaty threatens democracy, would attack workers’ rights, erode social standards and environmental regulations, dilute food safety rules, undermine regulations on the use of toxic chemicals, rubbish digital privacy laws, and strangle developing economies.

A copy (356 KB) of the pamphlet in PDF format is available here.


Speakers at the launch of the TIPP pamphlet

A press conference was held in Dublin on 5 September to launch the pamphlet. A press statement which summarises the contributions of the various speakers at the launch can be accessed here.
