10 myths about TTIP and CETA (aka ACTA on steroids)

From Camp_2015_Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Description Those secretly negotiated "trade" deals can be put under political pressure in the coming months. If they pass unopposed they will change democracy as we know it for ever. Democracy and the rule of law will effectively be thrown out of the window by putting transnational investors on an even footing with democratically elected governments of sovereign states. These Trojan treaties undermine our fundamental rights (including digital rights). We're faced by a propaganda campaign by the European Commission, corporate lobbyists and their useful idiots which is spreading a lot of misinformation about these treaties. Let's talk about these myths and about real threats for democracy, digital rights, climate and everything dear to your hearts. We will start from short intro about TTIP and CETA so don't worry if you have never heard about them before :)
