Honestly, why would the people of the European Union want to gamble with their health and well being? The EU’s policy on Food and Drugs has always been more stringent (especially in the world of GMO’s) then the U.S. For the sake of the people of Europe, these talks need to be very transparent. Big Business’s attempts and lowering the EU’s standards are being thwarted by
Stop TTIP and CETA
We call on the institutions of the European Union and its member states to stop the negotiations with the USA on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and not to ratify the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with Canada.
We want to prevent TTIP and CETA because they include several critical issues such as investor-state dispute settlement and rules on regulatory cooperation that pose a threat to democracy and the rule of law. We want to prevent lowering of standards concerning employment, social, environmental, privacy and consumers and the deregulation of public services (such as water) and cultural assets in non-transparent negotiations. The European Initiative supports an alternative trade and investment policy in the EU.
I love my country the U.S.A. but I see where other nations would be opposed to our Big Business’s interfering in the EU’s Ecological Policies, Employment, Health and Well Being.
