Day of Dissent 18 April Democracy vs TTIP #olsx @occupynn

At its heart, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is an assault on democracy. So, on the international day of action on 18 April we are responding to this corporate power grab through enacting democracy ourselves - let this be our Day of Dissent! 

‘Democracy vs TTIP’ will feature an open, participatory assembly on TTIP with opening comments from John Hilary (Executive Director, War on Want), Jenny Jones (Green Party) and Guy Taylor (Trade Campaigner, Global Justice Now).

This will be followed by mass public outreach - we will talk to hundreds of people, using face-to-face dialogue to bring to light an issue that is so crucial to us all, but invisible to so many. Alongside this, there will be workshops at our Activist Hub on other Free Trade Agreements such as CETA and TiSA for people wanting to develop their knowledge or skills when campaigning.

It will be an exciting day. Join us! 

This London event for the International Day of Action is supported by Global Justice Now, War on Want, Friends of the Earth, 38degress, Brick Lane Debates, This Changes Everything, Keep Our NHS Public & Students Against TTIP.
