Yesterday’s MEP vote in the environment committee is telling in many ways: By endorsing CETA, certain committee members voted against the environment, against public health and against food safety. The protection of these very issues are however, at heart of Europe’s citizens.
A handy guide to make calling Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) on CETA easy as a stroll in the park.
In a big blow to the people and the planet, the European Parliament’s Environmental Committee voted to give their consent to CETA this morning.
On February 1st the members of the European Parliament (EP) will vote on CETA, the free-trade agreement between the EU and Canada. The options are clear, you can vote pro, con or abstain.

On October 30, Donald Tusk (President of EU Council), Jean-Claude Juncker (President of the EU Commission) and Justin Trudeau (Canadian Prime-Minister) met in Brussels and signed CETA, the free trade deal between Canada and the EU.
But CETA is not a done deal.
With Wallonia dominating all the news on CETA, it gets easily forgotten that it will be soon up to the Members of the European Parliament to vote on it. We joined citizens from all parts of Europe who visited Brussels to find out how their representatives think about the EU-Canada trade deal.
