What Theresa May’s Brexit deal means for global justice (if it happens)

In or Out, the EU-Canada trade deal would mean a massive corporate power grab

Trade deals are looming large in the referendum debate here in the UK. The public at home and across Europe are increasingly asking questions about whom they are made for and why such secrecy surrounds them. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) talks began entirely hidden from public scrutiny with the backing of European prime ministers.

Activists across the UK are heading to DIY shops and garden centres to re-label bottles of Monsanto’s weed killer ‘Roundup’ with warnings that it contains the chemical glyphosate that the World Health Organisation has said is “probably carcinogenic”. The action is taking place with just over a week before the EU is set to decide on whether or not to relicense the chemical.
