Make the UK a TTIP free zone

TTIP, the EU-US trade deal, could be the biggest threat to democracy of our generation. This is true both at national level, where government policy like increasing the minimum wage or freezing energy prices could be challenged in secret corporate tribunals, and at local level, where councils could be forced to favour big American corporations over local, sustainable businesses in their procurement. Councils could also be challenged for doing things like denying planning permission for fracking in their local area.

Our campaign seeks to unite councils across the country who are concerned with the impact of TTIP on local democracy.
