HAVE YOU HEARD OF TTIP? The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is being negotiated behind closed doors…if agreed, TTIP would grant corporations the power to sue governments who don’t allow fracking… it is threatening to lock-in the privatisation of our schools and NHS. Rules that protect workers, the environment, food safety, public health, digital rights and privacy would be undermined. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/dec/02/transatlantic-free-trade-deal-regulation-by-lawyers-eu-us
