#NoTTIP London Demo - National Day of Action

Behind closed doors, the EU and US are planning the biggest corporate power grab in a decade. Join us in central London on 12 July to say no!

If agreed, the EU-US Trade Deal (TTIP) would undermine rules that protect digital rights and privacy, workers' rights and the environment would be undermined.

Take to the streets with ORG and a huge coalition of campaign groups in central London on 12 July at 12 noon.

We're meeting with over 600 other activists outside the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) for a creative action with art, theatre, workshops and music.

Together we will raise our voices in the heart of Whitehall, transforming a space with art, theatre, workshops and music -- and kick-starting a new movement with the power to win.

More details on on www.noTTIP.org.uk and on the Facebook event:

See you on 12 July!

How will TTIP damage our digital rights?

• TTIP is looking to be an ACTA 2.0 with the US government pushing for extremely restrictive copyright laws.

• TTIP will provide data-driven corporations, such as Facebook and Google, with the power to override positive EU data protection laws.

• The Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) section of TTIP enables corporations to sue governments for establishing laws which could harm their international investments. Laws which protect our digital rights, such as the current EU data protection laws, may well be attacked or blocked.

• The treaty has been shrouded in secrecy, with corporate lobbyists and politicians trying to hurry it through, making the negotiation process entirely opaque and undemocratic.

      Hi Graham, there will be a group with large ORG placards so should be identifiable. Cheers!
