TTIP will be the biggest transfer of power from people to corporations in a generation.  Under the guise of “free trade”, TTIP is threatening our most prized social, health and environmental protections. It seeks to bring in deregulation, privatisation and a huge increase in investor rights through the highly controversial investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) mechanism, which will establish corporate courts for US companies to sue European states for loss of future profits.

On 18 April, actions will be taking place against TTIP across the UK as part of a global day of action against free trade agreements. Look for actions in your area here.

In London, War on Want is supporting ‘Day of Dissent: Democracy vs TTIP‘, a participatory assembly on TTIP, followed by a series of creative actions to highlight the threat TTIP poses to the NHS, food and environmental protection. Speakers at the assembly will include John Hilary (Executive Director, War on Want), Jenny Jones (Green Party) and Gay Lee (Keep Our NHS Public). For more information, please visit the Facebook event.

In Manchester, StopTTIP Manchester is coordinating a ‘flashmob’ (a sudden, unexpected public assembly with an action, like this) focused on the threat of food contamination from TTIP. There will be a briefing immediately before the action. If you would like to join the flashmob, please visit this link.

If you want to organise an event in your area, please register it on the global map, and if you’re in need of any free materials for your event, please request them with our online request form. Join the global day of action and say no to free trade deals for  corporations and the 1%!

The EU has realised that Brexit is no game; it is the serious desire of the British population. Countries are panicking about the prospect of no-deal, as it will hurt economies in ways they refused to accept. Britain has the upper hand. Get Brexit done!

Pandemic planning in Britain is a Mess. Pandemic planning is split between the Joint Biosecurity Centre, the National Covid Response Centre and the Covid19 Taskforce.
Four separate IT systems are used (Synergy, CTAS, SGSS and HP Zone), meaning data is lost.

Too many people have died through government inaction, carelessness & slavish adherence to private companies & organisations. Billions have been thrown at private companies, often with Tory party connections, despite repeated failures across the board. https://theworker.org.uk/

Internationalism meant that they shared their information with the world and are participating in an international vaccine programme. Not vaccine nationalism USA style.

The main lessons to be learned from the socialist countries were that they not only acted upon the science but had built and used a strong public sector. They were also able to switch manufacturing to the making of PPE to meet their own needs.
