CETA CHECK 2.0 trailer
CETA CHECK! Trailer
Last year, with your support, we collected 3.5 Million signatures for our STOP TTIP & CETA European Citizens Initiative. Unfortunately, the European Commission and governments of EU Member States didn’t take it into consideration and are going even further by fast tracking CETA, the trade deal with Canada. This time we decided to make things a bit more direct and that’s why we went to Strasbourg to ask MEPs about their stance on CETA. And what is more exciting, we are giving you the opportunity to do the same! Go on www.cetacheck.eu and send your questions directly to the inbox of your MEP!
