The European Commission today proposed the provisional application of the free trade deal between the EU and Canada (the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement – CETA). That means the agreement would be applied before national parliaments have a chance to vote on it. [1]

The US-EU trade deal is a Trojan horse treaty; a dangerous deal that puts big business ahead of our society, health and environment.


Together we can stop this Trojan horse treaty unravelling our hard-won standards, and act to put people and the planet before profits.
