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, followed by a series of creative actions to highlight the threat TTIP poses to our NHS, food and environmental protection. We will use the day to reach out widely to the public, bringing to light an issue that is so crucial to us all but invisible to so many.
Speakers at the assembly will include John Hilary (War on Want), Guy Taylor (Global Justice Now), Blanche Jones (38Degrees), Sam Lowe (Friends of the Earth), Gay Lee (Keep Our NHS Public), and more TBC.
It will be an exciting day. Join us!
Democracy vs TTIP is organised by Global Justice Now, War on Want, Friends of the Earth, Brick Lane Debates, Keep Our NHS Public & Students Against TTIP.

*Days of Dissent is soon to be a monthly action where people can engage in creative acts of dissent all over the UK. Uniting the actions is the belief that deep system change is the only way to achieve a better world. Post 18th April, you’ll hear more about this!
