EU-US trade deal The interests of people and the planet must be put before the interests of big business

3 May 2016

Analysis of newly leaked documents on the EU-US trade negotiations (TTIP) has confirmed that the EU’s democracy, as well as safeguards for protecting people and the environment, are under a substantial and unprecedented corporate attack, according to Friends of the Earth Europe.  

The group has raised concerns about the EU’s food safety system, stating that there are too many warning signals to support claims by the European Commission that EU safety standards will remain if TTIP is agreed.

The controversial trade deal being negotiated between the EU and the US could spell disaster for European farming, finds a new report from Friends of the Earth Europe.  

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.
