EU-US trade deal The interests of people and the planet must be put before the interests of big business

10 May 2017

The European Commission today released new proposals for how the European Union deals with globalization issues.

Paul de Clerck from Friends of the Earth Europe reacted to the 'Harnessing Globalisation' paper:

16 March 2017

The European Union should abandon plans to establish a global corporate court system, say Campact, WeMove.EU and Friends of the Earth Europe ahead of the end of a public consultation on the issue by the European Commissionon Wednesday March 15, 2017.

More than 280 000 citizens from across Europe have signed a petition against the plans, known as the 'multilateral investment court'. [1]

The US-EU trade deal is a Trojan horse treaty; a dangerous deal that puts big business ahead of our society, health and environment.

 

Together we can stop this Trojan horse treaty unravelling our hard-won standards, and act to put people and the planet before profits.
