Corporate Europe Observatory, as a member of Seattle to Brussels Network, invites civil society organisations and social movements from across Europe to a meeting on 12-13 December in Brussels, in order to build a common strategy facing the threats of the EU-US trade and investment deal.
The proposed EU-US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP/TAFTA) may strongly affect social, labour and environmental rights on both sides of the Atlantic and deepen global trade and investment liberalisation. Indeed, elites from both sides explicitly aim at greater “transatlantic regulatory convergence" and "harmonization” of future regulations between the EU and the US, strictly in the interests of transnational corporations and financial industry.
The objective of the meeting is to bring together representatives of civil society organisations and social movements from across Europe that want to better understand the threats posed by the TTIP and want to work in a coordinated way to build a common strategy to face the proposed deal.
Please register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6th December.
Organised by: Seattle to Brussels Network, Friends of the Earth Europe, European ATTAC Network, European Coordination Via Campesina, OGB Europa Büro, La Quadrature du Net
