TTIP – Public online consultation

Share Button

Hoping the momentum against TTIP will build from now on. The recent ISDS consultation attracted only 170 submissions from Irish citizens (http://trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/docs/2014/july/tradoc_152693.pdf) which gives a measure of the level of awareness there is about TTIP in Ireland.

Let’s hope people are more proactive in lobbying TDs and MEPs to reject this agreement and in organising events for the upcoming European Day of Action on October 11.
