TTIP, the US/EU Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (called TAFTA – Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement in the US) is a ‘free trade’ agreement between the world two biggest economies, being negotiated now.
However TTIP is not about trade. It is in fact a corporate coup that will take us to a ‘corporatocracy’, a corporate-run world.
StopTTIP UK is a grassroots campaign to oppose this threat to our democracy and rights.
