-------- Original message --------

TTIP: The 'harmonization' of regulation for the benefit of corporations

Negotiated in secret and widely opposed by civil society and community groups, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) calls for the 'harmonisation' of regulations between the United States and the E.U.  Internet privacy and safety and environmental regulations in all areas are expected to be decimated if this anti-democratic re-write of common protections for workers, the environment, and the public is permitted.  Corporate interests with privileged access to the negotiating process hope to achieve technocratic control of regulatory science. To learn more come to this public discussion event:


  *   Linda Kaucher - Stop TTIP!
  *   Wendy Grossman - Open Rights Group
  *   Hilda Palmer - Hazards Campaign
  *   Sam Lowe - Friends of the Earth
