Tell your UK MEPs to stop CETA
On 30 October 2016, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and European leaders signed CETA*, the toxic trade deal between Canada and the EU. A
vote in the European parliament is now due in February 2017. We still have a chance to stop CETA and we urgently need your help.
Please tell your Members of the European parliament (MEPs) to reject CETA.
What is CETA and why we should stop it
CETA will allow big business to sue our government if they see their profits threatened by new laws.
CETA could threaten environmental protection and worker’s rights. While trade unions, civil society organisations and even our MPs have been largely excluded from negotiations on CETA, big business has enjoyed significant influence throughout the process.
If CETA passes the European parliament, it will be ‘provisionally implemented’, which means that even if the UK parliament votes against CETA, we’d still be part of the deal for at least 2 years. If the deal is fully approved, however, leaving the deal could take up to 20 years.
Last year, more than 3 million people from all over the EU signed a petition to stop a similar trade deal, TTIP. It’s clear that that people do not want deals like TTIP and CETA. And if we work together, we can stop CETA.
Please write to your UK MEPs to make sure they reject CETA.
