Irland: Public wants referendum on TTIP - poll

The vast majority of Irish people want a referendum on the proposed US-EU free trade deal if it looks like it could become law, a survey suggests.

They also want a similar poll on Europe's planned trade agreement with Canada, according to the survey carried out by Red C.

The survey was commissioned by lobby group Uplift, which has campaigned against the US agreement.

Talks on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), a sweeping US-European free trade deal, started three years ago - but the two sides have been unable to settle differences over various issues, including agriculture.

The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between Canada and the EU has also taken years to negotiate, and could come into force next year.

Uplift commissioned Red C to conduct a poll on public attitudes in Ireland towards certain potential aspects of both the TTIP and CETA trade agreements, with a random sample of 1,004 adults across the country interviewed by telephone earlier this month.

TTIP could cause an NHS sell-off and UK Parliament would be powerless to stop it, says leading union

Exclusive: Gail Cartmail, Unite assistant general secretary, said that it was “a scandal” that MPs may not have the democratic power to stop TTIP

The UK Parliament may not have the power to stop or reverse the privatisation of the NHS if the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership passed at EU level, Unite has warned.

The union cites a letter from Lord Maude of Horsham, the minister for trade and investment, in response to a query from a constituent of Labour MP Jim Fitzpatrick about how TTIP would pass into law in the UK.

Londoner Ökonomen: TTIP bringt keine Vorteile!  http://www.compact-online.de/londoner-oekonomen-ttip-bringt-keine-vorteile/#comments

David Cameron, Regierungschef von Großbritannien, hat als TTIP-Befürworter große Sorgen. Nach dem Propaganda-Besuch von Obama hätte er das TTIP-Gutachten der London School of Economics (LSE) von 2013 gerne weiterhin unter Verschluss gehalten. Denn deren Fazit war vernichtend. Das Schlimmste: Die Regierung hatte es selbst in Auftrag gegeben. Womöglich in der irrigen Absicht, sich die angeblichen Vorteile des Abkommens wissenschaftlich bestätigen zu lassen. Jetzt aber haben TTIP-Gegner „Global Justice Now“ die Publikation dieser Bumerang-Studie erzwungen. Und sie bestätigt die schlimmsten Befürchtungen.

TTIP: More than 130,000 people urge Barack Obama to kill controversial trade deal during UK visit

President Obama is expected to continue to discuss the controversial Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership with David Cameron  

Thousands of people have signed a petition to stop president Barack Obama from agreeing on a controversial trade deal between the US and the European Union which protesters say gives more power to corporations.

The Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP), a free-trade agreement which members of campaign group 38 Degrees say threatens the NHS, food standards, animal welfare and “democracy”, might be signed before Mr Obama leaves the White House next January.

CETA Canada-EU 'free trade' deal could come into force without vote

Oliver Tickell

The Stop TTIP coalition is warning that under a 'stealth clause' in CETA the trade deal could come into force without a single parliamentary vote - including its ISDS provisions allowing investors to sue governments in secret courts. US corporations would then be able to sue EU nations - even if TTIP fails.

TPP protestors

Governments and large corporations may have hammered out agreements to craft a TPP that suits them - some see no gain though for workers

TPP: What is it and why does it matter?

  • 3 February 2016

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is one of the most ambitious free trade agreements ever signed.

Those in favour say this trade deal will unleash new economic growth among countries involved.

Those against - particularly some Americans - fear it could mean jobs will move from the US to developing countries.

They also do not like the fact the five-year talks were held largely in secret.

Transatlantic regulatory cooperation in TTIP – a business-driven lobby project

regulatoryduetA new report by Corporate Europe Observatory and LobbyControl examines the origins and impacts of TTIP's proposals for regulatory cooperation and shows that the process has been dominated by big business right from the start. This part of the talks involves dismantling existing “regulatory barriers” and preventing new ones from emerging with public interest regulations having to go through lengthy procedures, including vetting by business for possible impacts on trade. The TTIP talks cover a wide range of policy areas from chemicals regulations to employment policy, data protection to agriculture and are thus the biggest focal point for lobbying efforts right now in Brussels.

Local authorities against TTIP in Europe

In many European countries, local authorities are mobilising against free trade agreements (TTIP, CETA, TiSA) which are paving the way for far-reaching liberalisation of services. Those treaties will jeopardise democratic principles by substantially reducing political space and restricting the scope for public choices via the implementation of the investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) and Regulatory Cooperation.
