Day of action against the US trade deal

Oct24

Saturday 24 October

Take action against the US trade deal to protect services, standards, rights and democracy!

Supported by Global Justice Now, Keep Our NHS Public, War on Want, Traidcraft, We Own It, Open Rights Group, SumOfUs, Compassion in World Farming, Another Europe is Possible and the Stop Trump Coalition.

Plan for the day

We're taking a stand together on Saturday 24 October against the high risk US trade deal which could reshape our society into a corporate marketplace. People all across the country are taking action, and we will come together at the end of the day in an online rally.

If you do ONE thing for the day of action, send a photo message:

  1. Take a photo of yourself holding a message saying 'Stop the US trade deal' - the message could be a simple piece of paper (you could use this A4 poster), or carved on a pumpkin lantern, or another creative message
  2. Upload the photo to https://dropevent.com/stopUStradedeal - click on the pink 'Add photos' button and follow the instructions. We will share photos from around the country at the online rally and then send them all to Boris Johnson
  3. If you are on Twitter, tweet the photo using the hashtag #StoptheUSTradeDeal. Tag the trade minister, Liz Truss, @trussliz and your own MP, so they know you are opposed to the deal.

If you have time to do more, have a look at our action ideas - and if you’re in London, we’re holding a socially distanced protest in Parliament Square.

We know of events happening in Ayrshire, Bexhill and Hastings, Bournemouth, Bradford, Cambridge, Cleveland, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Macclesfield, Manchester, Merseyside, Nottingham, Oswestry, Oxford, Portsmouth, Reading and York.
