The EU will force TTIP on Britain

More and more workers in their unions have begun to see TTIP as a creation of finance capitalism, and something to oppose. In Britain several unions have policy of opposition to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. These include the  GMB, NUT, PCS, Unison and Unite as well as the TUC. Also many demonstrations have taken place against these trade agreements and the multinational corporations and transnational bodies which will benefit. These demonstrators have included Occupy and Anonymous activists and organisations such as Friends of the Earth and War on Want. In both Europe and North America workers are against TTIP and  it should now be our internationalist duty to oppose it.

TTIP is a trade agreement concocted in secret between the EU and the USA, similar to an agreement with Canada called CETA. Its aim is to fix the policy of privatisation in all countries for all time; it takes the warped anti-democratic doctrine of shared sovereignty to its conclusion. The treaty takes power away from democratically elected governments, and it is those governments along with politicians, financiers and assorted billionaires who have approved it. Any legislation is subject to scrutiny by a transtlantic authority, which can stop that which is deemed to hurt the interests of business.

The Trade Agreement sets up secret courts under the investor – state disputes mechanism, that allows huge corporations to sue nation states. A main aim of TTIP is to create new markets by opening up public services including health and education, and all government procurement. It will also do away with regulations that protect workers’ rights, safety rules, social and environmental standards, consumer protection, privacy laws and even the banking safeguards introduced after the financial crisis of 2008.

We have the chance to torpedo these undemocratic agreements that will cause so much damage, by comprehensively opposing the EU and campaigning for a No vote in the forthcoming referendum on the 23 June.

As the world responds to the Covid 19 virus we see that only collective social action, science based government decisions & publicly funded Research & Deveopment in conjunction with public health services, can marshal a defence and cure.

The "special" relationship between Britain & US? Refusal by authorities to allow entry to British cruise ship. Instead Cuba, in the spirit of international solidarity have allowed the ship to dock & are providing treatment to Covid positive passengers.

This is the EU scorched earth policy. When health professionals & public health bodies across Europe & the world are working together, the EU is resorting to siege tactics and denying UK's access to coronavirus vaccine. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-coronavirus-vaccine-update-uk-news-symptoms-a9402976.html%3famp

Uyghur separatists in China are pan-Turkic racists, have historic links with Turkish fascist, terrorist group the Gray Wolves & long-standing support from the CIA. Pro-Islamic Uyghur militias are present in Syria with invading forces.
