TheGuardian: Artists on: TTIP Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (Companion to TPP)



Published on Jun 9, 2015


A group of artists including actors Ruth Wilson, Andrew Scott and Juliet Stevenson and designer Vivienne Westwood are fronting a campaign (artistsagainstttip.org) to raise public awareness of the trade deal TTIP (pronounced tee-tip) which is being secretly negotiated between the EU and the US.

They are questioning its democratic validity, as no UK MP has had access to the negotiating documents. This week a European petition against TTIP has reached a record 2 million signatures, a few days ahead of a crucial vote on the deal by MEPs in the European parliament.

1. "Corporate interests have got to stop coming first." I'd say that about sums it up here & there.

Spread the word about TPP, let's stop enabling this coup d'état of multinat'ls over people & nations. Listen up, politicians, we will remember all of you that supported fast tracking TPP.

3. TPP & TTIP are telling all of us profit trumps everything, and our politicians are enabling it.

We will remember who voted for fast track.

TY, midnight, for reminding us that peace will never be a goal when there are profits to be made.
