Alert! EU-US Transatlantic FTA - Call for mobilisation in Europe and the United States
EU-US Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement: More injustice, unemployment and environmental destruction
Presidents Obama, EU Council President Van Rompuy and EU Commission President Barroso committed on Feb 13 to start EU-US trade and investment negotiations, which may strongly affect social, labor and environmental rights in both sides of the Atlantic and deepen global trade and investment liberalization. Indeed, elites from both sides explicitly aim at greater transatlantic regulatory convergence and harmonization of future regulations between the EU and the US, in the only interests of transnational corporations and financial industry. Our aspiration to build alternatives to the existing trade and investment regime, as to the existing development model, might be seriously affected by this negotiations.
