A controversial, far reaching trade agreement that critics call a ‘turbo-charged privatisation pact’ is set to be debated in the European Parliament in Strasbourg next week. Warning that the deal will be a ‘nail in the coffin’ of public services around the world, campaigners have called on MEPs to reject the agreement.

The WTO is not dead


10 December 2015

The last time the World Trade Organisation met was December 2013. The negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and the campaign to stop it had not even started. Trade seemed to be off the agenda and after years of stalled negotiations the WTO was expected to slowly become irrelevant.

The WTO is meeting again next week for the first time in Africa, and I will be there.

Our new briefing during the Paris climate talks outlines five reasons why controversial trade deals being promoted by the EU would make it much more difficult to deal with the threat of climate change, regardless of the outcome of the UN talks.

Responding to the Wikileaks release of documents from the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) which is being negotiated by the US, EU and 22 other countries, released to coincide with the COP 21 climate negotiations taking place in Paris, Nick Dearden the director of Global Justice Now said:

The release of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) text - a giant trade and investment between 12 countries including the US and Japan - has led to claims by campaigns groups that the pact will cost jobs and represents 'a disaster for democracy.' The TPP is a parallel agreement to TTIP, the US-EU deal, which has met with serious opposition from across Europe.
