Scottish Trade Justice Teach in
When: September 30, 2020
Wednesday 30 September
Knowledge is power: as campaigners, we need to be able to argue against the many toxic aspects to the UK-US trade deal negotiated behind closed doors. We’ve heard about the threats to our NHS and food standards – but there are more threats to uncover. Discover some of the lesser known – but equally concerning – dangers that a trade deal presents at this trade justice teach-in for Scottish activists.
- Jean Blaylock, Global Justice Now’s trade campaigner will talk about the impact on our ability to tackle climate change in Scotland and the UK.
- Chloe Alexander, trade campaigner at CHEMTrust will talk about the lowering of safety standards for chemicals and how that might affect cosmetics and many other household items.
- Matthew Rice, Scotland director of the Open Rights Group will talk about threats to our privacy from digital technology and how the threat might increase with a UK-US trade deal.
This webinar is for activists in Scotland who are currently campaigning, or keen to be campaigning against a US-UK trade deal locally. Each speaker will talk for around 10 minutes and then we will open up the (virtual) floor to questions and answers.
