StopTTIP is the UK part of an international campaign opposing the US/EU Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), claiming it will give corporations excessive control over our society, degrading regulation on health & safety, food, environment, privacy, banking and much more. The NHS is now already ‘harmonised’ with the US corporate-access public health model.
A new wave of corporate trade deals threaten to increase global inequality, undermine democracy and hand public service provision to multinational companies. One such deal is the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the USA and the EU, which is a dangerous blueprint that must be stopped before it is rolled out around the world.
For the first time on a grand scale, corporations would be able to sue governments and take away their sovereignty to make decisions for the benefit of their own people.

The World Development Movement is campaigning against this threat to democracy, public services and the environment. You can add your voice to challenge the corporate trade agenda by emailing your MP and ask him or her to demand full transparency on the TTIP negotiations and to protect democracy, public services and the environment by opposing this aggressive new trade deal.
