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%!

In Scotland the aim must be to have a non-separatist majority who are willing to work together to prevent the SNP and allies having a disruptive second referendum.
No to the break up of Britain! Deal with this before we can rebuild.

#votelabour today to build a better, fairer future after the pandemic.

Difficult times for the unity of Britain. Stopping an overall majority for separatists depends on tactical voting by unionists & their large turnout; a lack of cohesion among the pro independence parties; & winning over undecided voters.
Vote for Unity.

Support for Scottish independence has dropped from a high point at the start of the year, and polls are showing a 50/50 split on the question. In this crucial election many workers intend to vote tactically to maintain the union & thwart the separatists.

Alliance for Unity correctly say
Stand up to the SNP against Scottish separatism
Seek to form a government of 'national unity' in favour of the Union
Work with any & all pro-Union parties to stop nationalists from holding a second indepedence referendum.
