Yesterday’s vote in the European Parliament’s 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. The vote was not close, instead a comfortable majority secured support for CETA (40+/24-). This is because party attitudes are largely drawn, with the leaders of the ‘Grand Coalition‘ from Conservatives, Liberals and Social Democrats officially supporting CETA.

There is only one way to break this “cartel”: by approaching MEPs individually. If your MEPs are among those who voted to support CETA, call them, email them, fax them and tell them what you think! Silence is the enemy!
