Trading with Trump: what we can expect from a US-UK trade deal

April 2017

A free trade deal between the US and the UK is likely to include all the elements that made the earlier trade negotiations between the EU and the US on TTIP so controversial, but in a more extreme form – TTIP on steroids.

Trade campaign update for Scottish activists

March 2017

Could there be trade deals any worse than the toxic ones like TTIP and CETA, recently negotiated between the EU and other countries? Unfortunately, we think there could be, and what’s more, it is likely to be the UK government, post-Brexit who will be negotiating them. Already, there is talk of a US-UK trade deal. And this month, trade secretary Liam Fox has been meeting Commonwealth nations to talk about other trade deals – a meeting dubbed ‘Empire 2.0’ by Whitehall officials.

From handouts to the super-rich to a hand-up for small-scale farmers

Animals, drugs and superbugs

December 2016

Drug resistant bacteria are spreading across the world, threatening to turn previously treatable diseases into deadly killers. A big part of the problem is that the production and much of the use of antibiotics is in the hands of large corporations that seek profit over the wellbeing of people.but they will also be the first and hardest hit as cheaper forms of antibiotics become ineffective

December 2016

The final vote on CETA at the European parliament is likely to take place on the 1 or 2 of February, so we have only six weeks to persuade our Scottish MEPs to vote against the deal. So far, none of our six Scottish MEPs have pledged to vote against CETA.

Inviting Scandal - DfID’s dangerous plans to expand its controversial private equity arm

December 2016

Our new briefing reviews recent CDC investments and shows how serious questions remain about its impact on poverty reduction. It shows that there is still little evidence to support its current development impact claims which are largely based on assumptions – rather than proof. It argues that dramatically increasing its size and influence is a premature and potentially dangerous move.

CETA update for Scottish activists - November 2016

November 2016

Welcome to November's update.

CETA is back from the dead. Last month we held our breath as Wallonia, one of Belgium’s regional parliaments, was able to block the trade deal from being agreed by the EU Council of Ministers. But Wallonia has been appeased for now at least, and so the trade deal moves to the European parliament for further consideration and a vote forecast for February next year. So now it is essential we turn all our efforts to our six Scottish MEPs and urge them to reject the deal.
