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%!

#USdisinformation tsar, Nina Jankowicz resigned as board ended after only a few weeks. She accuses critics of disinformation then she lied by suggesting that China or Iran would give false information to US citizens during a disaster, putting them at risk.

Azov battalion surrender at the Azovstal steelworks; a symbolic defeat for Ukraine. US, UK & some EU governments still want to fight the war to the last Ukrainian; they continue warmongering and sending weaponry to Ukraine.

#Russia says it has no problem with #Sweden or #Finland, hence no problem with it joining #NATO. It will however monitor its deployment of troops and weaponry, and take action appropriate to the threats.
As in Britain it's up to the people to say #No2NATO.
