London - Public meeting on the TTIP

Public Meeting on the Trans-Atlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) 

Wednesday April 23rd, 7.30pm at the Archway Methodist Hall (middle of the Archway roundabout) 

DON'T TTIP PUBLIC SERVICES DOWN THE DRAIN ! 

A dangerous new treaty is on the way between the EU and the USA. It's called the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership 

It may make it impossible to re-nationalise any public service that's been sold off or contracted out - like the railways or bits of the NHS! 

It will let companies sue governments about almost any policy that's against the company's interest. 

It may threaten environmental regulations, safety rules, and workers' rights 

It's being talked through in secret. The European Commission prom-ised a public consultation period in March – but nothing's been an-nounced about that and March is over half gone as we write this leaflet 

Similar treaties have got some governments (e.g. Equador) big fines even for trying to get a company to pay its taxes properly
