Trade has always been part of society and in itself it could be a good thing. But trade deals are no longer just about selling more goods to other countries. Instead, they are often about giving huge new powers to big business, affecting every aspect of society from the public services to online privacy, from environmental protection to food standards.
We are campaigning to ensure trade deals work for people and planet. We are doing this by fighting for parliament to have the powers to scrutinise and approve future trade deals, challenging future UK trade deals and making sure they do not include corporate courts.
